PLL-SIS Summit III: The Path to 2020: A Vision for Change

The PLL Summit, now in its third year, continues to address issues critical to the future of law librarians and law firms. As change agents, we must ask the questions that will help us understand the fundamental changes in the business and practice of law. What will information services look like in 2020, and what should we be doing now to advance that vision? How do we empower ourselves to drive information strategies, ensuring our own viability as information professionals? In addition to a forward-looking discussion of library services, a panel of partners, including Greg Castanias, Library partner at Jones Day, will discuss the value proposition librarians bring to the table and how they see our roles evolving. Breakout sessions will cover the business of law, proactively managing your career and technological advances and challenges.

 

Participants will be better able to understand the trends, structure, and pressures of the law firm environment, so that they can be prepared to take leadership roles as the practice of law goes through a time of radical change.


In order to provide access to a wider audience, we have secured a venue that can accommodate up to 350 attendees. We encourage members to register early so they can be a part of this invaluable one-day conference.

Visit the PLL Summit blog to obtain more information as the final agenda, programs and speakers are confirmed.

Legislative Advocacy Training 2012: Becoming an Effective Advocate

Law librarians, as constituents and experts in their field, play a critical role in influencing public policy at the federal and state levels. AALL’s annual Advocacy Training is designed to teach you the skills you need to successfully advocate for the information policy issues that matter to you, your library and the profession.

 

The training will feature a special guest speaker, Joseph Demers, a Massachusetts legislative staffer, who will discuss the “dos and don’ts” of effective advocacy and provide specific examples to help you get your message heard by decision-makers.

 

You’ll also have an opportunity to choose from two hands-on breakout sessions: the first, on developing best practices and strategies for promoting the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA) and overcoming challenges in your state; and the second on ensuring law library participation and collaboration in the future of the Federal Depository Library Program. The breakout sessions give participants the chance to brainstorm with colleagues in other states; you’ll come away with practical ideas that you can take back to your library and your community.

 

The training is sponsored by AALL’s Government Relations Office and Government Relations Committee and is available at no cost to members. To register, please contact Elizabeth Holland by June 29.

 

The Advocacy Training agenda is now available here.

Complete Tour of Boston

Discover the charm of one of America's oldest and most historic cities. With almost 400 years of history, you’ll experience Boston’s old and new. Neighborhoods your visit may include:

Beacon Hill: Boston's most prestigious address and home to the gold-domed State House, overlooking Boston Common and the Public Garden. Also view the famous Swan Boats. Beacon Hill has been home to many notable Americans.

Back Bay: The neighborhood gained its name because the area was, before extensive landfilling in the 19th Century, literally the "Back Bay" for Boston. Now the area is known for an upscale residential, retail, and commercial office district.

Downtown: Boston's center of business and government and home to one of Boston's most historic sites such as Faneuil Hall. Downtown also serves as a sanctuary for shoppers, offering everything from large department stores to cozy boutiques.

North End: Home to American patriot Paul Revere, the North End is one of Boston's most historic neighborhoods. Traditionally a first stop for immigrants arriving in Boston, the North End is most well known as an enclave of Italian immigrants.

Charlestown: As the home to such significant landmarks as the U.S.S. Constitution, the Bunker Hill Monument and the Navy Yard, Charlestown's allure has enticed a new generation of immigrants and young professionals to join its traditionally Irish-American population.

Fenway/Kenmore: Perhaps most recognized as the home of Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox, Fenway/Kenmore also boasts many of the City's top cultural institutions, including the Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall. Fenway/Kenmore also has a strong academic presence.
