A PDF copy of the current LLOPS Membership Directory is now available under the “Member Resources” tab of the website. Please note that you can print a copy of the Directory if you wish; we are not planning to have them printed for LLOPS members this year since it’s so easy to access online!
You can also use this link to get to the Directory: http://www.aallnet.org/chapter/llops/members/search.asp.
You’ll need to log-in with the same LLOPS username and password that we normally use for members only resources. If you don’t have this information, email Kim Ositis.
If you have corrections to the Membership Directory please contact me.
What did you miss? Who was there? Was holiday cheer served in the form of jello shots? There were donuts?! Pictures and the scoop will be provided in LLOPSCited next week so be sure to check your inboxes!
If you would like to share your thoughts or pictures, please contact Grace Feldman!
The deadline for submissions to LLOPSCited is fast approaching, please contact Grace Feldman with any LLOPS related content (announcements/events/member updates and news) you’d like to include by December 1. Both the LLOPS blog and LLOPSCited are always looking for new content by LLOPS members. If you’d like to volunteer or if you have any questions, feel free to contact Grace Feldman!

I encourage all LLOPS members to feel free to send submissions, photos and suggestions for either the LLOPS blog or LLOPSCited to contact me!

As Darcy Kirk noted in her February e-letter, Mary Whisner‘s Fall 2009 Law Library Journal article, “The United States Code, Prima Facie Evidence, and Positive Law,” was recently cited at length in Gonzalez v. Village of West Milwaukee, 2012 WL 313572 (7th Cir. Feb. 2, 2012). I really enjoyed Mary’s most recent offering in LLJ’s recent tribute to Morris L. Cohen: “That Most Congenial Lawyer/Bibliographer”. Mary “browses” Cohen’s Bibliography of Early American Law to produce a collection of asides and lively interaction between U.S. History and Legal Bibliography. I would not say that her article drove me to consult Cohen’s work (though I might dive into The Reporters to find out what Cranch & Wheaton are up to). I am sure that even those who have taken Legal Bib in the last 20 years will fully enjoy joining Mary on her “trip to Nerdvana.”
