Law Librarians & Legal Information Professionals as Partners in the Access to Justice Movement
Wednesday, March 3, 2021 (2pm - 3pm US/Central)
Law librarians and legal information professionals are in an excellent position to help close the growing access to justice gap. In particular, academic and government law libraries that are open to the public may be interested in partnering with public libraries to provide greater access to legal information and support for navigating legal services. Law librarians can also assist public librarians with expanding their knowledge and improving their skills to respond to legal questions. This webinar will highlight different partnership models and introduce current opportunities and resources.
As follow-up to the webinar, you are welcome to enroll in WebJunction’s Facilitator Training that begins on March 8 and runs through March 26. This is a free, three-week training on how to guide peer learning groups through the Creating Pathways to Civil Legal Justice series of self-paced courses. The training is designed for anyone passionate about learning with others to augment the role libraries can play in access to justice issues. This training is part of WebJunction’s Improving Access to Civil Legal Justice through Public Libraries training initiative in partnership with the Legal Services Corporation.
