AALL Call for Papers

The “CALL FOR PAPERS” HAS BEGUN!

Have you been thinking of writing an article of interest to law librarians? The AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers Committee has just the incentive to get started.

The Committee is soliciting articles in three categories:

- Open Division: for active and retired AALL members and law librarians with five or more years of professional experience

- New Members Division: for recent graduates and AALL members who have been in the profession for less than five years

- Student Division: for students in library, information management or law school. Participants in this division need not be members of AALL. To submit in this category, you must have been enrolled in law school, or in a library school, information management, or an equivalent program, either in the Fall 2008 or Spring 2009 semester.

Articles in the Open and New Members Division must be submitted by March 2, 2009.

Articles in the Student Division must be submitted by April 15, 2009.

The winner in each division receives $750 generously donated by LexisNexis, plus the opportunity to present the winning paper at a program at the 2009 AALL Annual Meeting in Washington , D.C. Winning papers are also considered for publication in the Association’s prestigious Law Library Journal.

For more information, a list of previous winners, an application and instructions on how to submit your article, visit the AALL Web site.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of the AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers Committee: Chair, Jim Heller, James Donovan, or David Hollander.
