However, there are many common and valuable uses that have consistently been found to fall under fair use, and organizations have developed suggested practices for making strong cases for fair use.

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.
