The annual Public Policy Update connects members with AALL’s policy committees—Copyright and Government Relations—and fellow advocates to promote and strengthen the Association’s grassroots advocacy efforts. Participants will hear about AALL’s past and upcoming legislative priorities and have the opportunity to talk with the policy chairs and one another during small group sessions led by the committee chairs. Topics will include access to court information in PACER, changes at the Library of Congress and Government Publishing Office, enactments of the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act, and the latest on copyright. In addition, the winners of the 2019 Public Access to Government Information and Robert Oakley Advocacy awards will receive their awards and give brief remarks.
