About LLAW

The Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin (LLAW) is a non-profit organization established for educational, informational and social purposes. Its objectives are to promote librarianship; develop the usefulness of libraries and the skill of their users; cultivate the profession of law librarianship; foster a spirit of cooperation among members; and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and resources on a state-wide level.

LLAW became a chapter of the  American Association of Law Libraries (AALL)  in June, 1982. LLAW is required to provide AALL with an  annual report . Today over 100 members represent all segments of the legal library community, including private law firm, corporate, county, state, federal and academic librarians.

LLAW meets quarterly to discuss business, to listen to speakers on educational topics, and to network with colleagues. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. For location and details of meetings, please see  Programs . In addition to our own meetings, LLAW and its members participate in library and legal conferences at the state and national level.

LLAW also provides a  brochure  which can be downloaded, printed, and distributed.
