Purpose

The Education Committee provides educational programs, speakers, seminars and classes useful to the membership. All programs are intended to accomplish the following goals:

  2. Provide a forum for discussion of techniques, skills, and problems in the workplace;
  3. Offer opportunities to discuss new developments in law librarianship in the workplace;
  4. Provide general interest programs that may not be directly related to law libraries but which may enhance the careers or work life of the membership, such as financial membership, stress management, etc.
