Webinar II
Access to Justice: Best Practices for Court, County, and Government Law Libraries
 

Tuesday, March 24, 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. Eastern

Panelists: Sara Galligan, Joan Bellistri, and Janine Liebert

Moderator: James Durham

Program Description: As we claim our role in alleviating the justice gap, law librarians provide unique services for self represented litigants and are critical advocates for essential library services. Two 2014 reports have made great strides in understanding how court and county law libraries enhance access to justice:  the Self-Represented Litigant Network's law library subgroup survey and report on law library services and self help centers; and AALL's Access to Justice Special Committee report on Law Libraries and Access to Justice. This program is specifically for court, county, and government law librarians who want to learn basic service benchmarks as well as touchstones for evolving services, as gleaned from the two reports. Whether a practical lesson or best practice for library self-help programs, these guiding principles will energize attendees. The program will  serve as a catalyst for enhancing services in all public law libraries, no matter  how small or large. It will also convince law librarians that they can and must promote law library services among other collaborators in the legal community.

Free registration for Webinar II will be open soon!
