On May 27, 2015, LLOPS will be hosting AALL Executive Board Member, Donna Nixon from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Katherine R. Everett Law Library. Donna will be leading a discussion on the topic of training attorneys to perform legal research. Donna will lead a panel to discuss legal research training provided by law school vs. court librarians and law firm librarians.  The meeting will be held at the William K. Nakamura US Courthouse. And, LLOPS will be providing free lunch (pizza and salads)!

We have two law firm librarians, Jessica King from Perkins Coie, and Sarah Andeen from Williams Kastner, who have agreed to sit on the panel.

We would love to have one or two court librarians join them. Please contact Brenna Louzin if you would like to join this panel.

CALI 2015

The session proposals are in and it looks like we’re going to have a great conference in Denver.  We’re just missing one ingredient – YOU!   Here’s two ways you can make CALIcon15 great:

1)  Look at the proposed sessions and if you see something you like, vote for it!  That helps us decide the final schedule.  The voting link appears at the bottom of a session description next to the social media share button.  Speaking of which, feel free to share your sessions on social media and hustle for votes.  Please note: CALI cannot condone or endorse bribery.

2) Attend!  The sessions are only a part of the value of CALIcon.  Past attendees report that they enjoy the “HallwayCon” and interaction with other attendees almost as much as the sessions themselves. Besides, it’s silly to give a presentation to an empty room.

To register, please visit the CALIcon Registration page and follow the instructions. If you attended last year, you can use the same username/password that you used then.  However, if you did not attend last year, you’ll need to create a new account, even if you have attended CALIcon in the past.
