Teaching law practice technology/management classes

More and more librarians are being called upon to teach law practice management and/or law practice technology courses. It is so rampant that a caucus has been created on this topic. It would be great for a session or sessions to focus on: curriculum design, helpful vendors, what has worked/not worked at other schools, and what the firms want new associates to know with regards to technology.

Reaching Out to Public Librarians for Access to Justice

In many places public law libraries are difficult to access or not open to the public at all. In those communities there is still a need for legal information and public librarians are in a perfect position to provide assistance if we help them learn the basics of legal research. This is an opportunity in A2J for any law librarian who wants to offer assistance, not just those in public facing positions.
