Collaboration and Outreach: Supporting Community Legal Research (ALL-SIS)

Thursday, June 17, 2021 (1pm - 2pm US/Central)

The ALL-SIS Continuing Education Committee is happy to announce Inclusion: Teaching, Terms, and Community, a series of webinars focused on how specific issues of equity and inclusion are being recognized and addressed by academic law libraries.

The third event in our series is Collaboration and Outreach: Supporting Community Legal Research. Ever wondered how you could support marginalized and low-income communities in your area? Join us for a conversation and learn from law librarians doing just that. The panelists will share how they develop collaborations and nurture relationships with public libraries to provide needed legal research services to local communities. Programs such as the "Circuit Riders Outreach Program" and the online course "Creating Pathways to Civil Legal Justice through Public Libraries" will be discussed. Participants will be given the opportunity ask the panelists questions about best practices in establishing partnerships with public libraries in their own communities.

The speakers will include:

-- Moderator: Anne Rajotte from the University of Connecticut Law School
-- Panelist: Rebekah Maxwell from the University of South Carolina School of Law Library
-- Panelist: Sara V. Pic from the Law Library of Louisiana (author of “Bridging the Gap Between Public Libraries & Law Libraries to Improve Access to Justice” in the March/April 2021 issue of Spectrum)
-- Panelist: Elizabeth Caulfield, from the California Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District

Please join us for this important conversation on Thursday, June 17, at 2 PM Eastern, 11 AM Pacific.
