About Us

The Private Law Librarians & Information Professionals (PLLIP) Special Interest Section of the American Association of Law Libraries was established in 1977, originally under the name Private Law Libraries Special Interest Section, to “improve the quality and service of private law libraries by emphasizing the goals, needs, and special interests and to represent its members’ interests and concerns within AALL.

Today, PLLIP is one of the largest SISs in AALL, and has grown to more than 1,300 members across the United States. The issues targeted by the organization have expanded to include the future of legal research instruction, the development of information technology, and the revolution in law firm structure and management.
