Cultivating the Primary Patron & Academic Librarian Relationship

LLMs, SJDs, and JDs are all accepted as candidates chosen by the law school administration. What role can libraries place in knowing who these patrons are (ie where do they come from, work backgrounds, etc)? Librarians have a unique opportunity to connect to students without the pressure of the doctrinal, competitive relationship students naturally have with most of their professional law school encounters.

Photoshop for Law Librarians

Either a Deep Dive or Pre-conference workshop teaching law librarians how to use Photoshop (and maybe other software) to create effective marketing materials. I attended the Guerrilla Marketing panel at this year's AALL and found the speakers to be very effective and they have a lot of ideas that could be taught in a 1-day workshop.
