Hazel Johnson, Law Library Services Consultant
Mark Folmsbee, Associate Director and Head of Public Services, Washburn University of Topeka School of Law Library
Marcia Koslov, State Law Librarian, Wisconsin State Law Library
For her work on the Steering Committee for the ABA National Conference on Public Trust and Confidence in the Judicial System that I want to highlight. Marcia arranged to have fifteen law librarians serve as reporters for that important conference, which was attend by five hundred leaders from state and federal courts, the bar, the media, and various citizens groups.
Carol Billings, Director of the Law Library, Law Library of Louisiana
Minnesota Association of Law Libraries
For supporting the inauguration of the Chapter VIP Program, an alliance between AALL and its chapters designed to bring to our meetings influential individuals from government, from legal and information associations, from academia, and from the private sector. The Minnesota Association of Law Libraries, a modest-sized chapter with a Midwestern can-do spirit, sponsored four VIPs to join us here in Washington.
For challenging the Texas Unauthorized Practice recognize the folks who had the courage, and the business motivation of course, to take on the Texas Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee, which attempted to ban the sale and use of so-called self-help legal materials. Nolo Press invited AALL to be a named plaintiff for a lawsuit, an invitation the Executive Board could not turn down.
Mary Alice Baish, AALL Associate Washington Affairs Representative
