AALL is putting together working groups in every state to stop the threat of elimination of state official print legal resources in favor of online-only and increase understanding among state officials about digital authentication. I’m writing to ask if you’re willing to participate in the Alabama working group.

The progress the working group makes will be very helpful when the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws’ recently appointed Drafting Committee on Authentication and Preservation of State Electronic Legal Materials makes its recommendations on a new uniform state law. The working group will have set the groundwork for pursuing the recommendations in Alabama.

Please let me know if you’ll be able to help with this important effort.
