All public librarians are encouraged to apply for a scholarship, sponsored by the LLNE Service Committee, to attend our chapter’s Legal Research Instruction Program.
The Legal Research Instruction Program (LRIP) is a six week seminar for those interested in learning more about legal research and law librarianship. Each week, a different aspect of legal research is covered, everything from an overview of the U.S. legal system to finding transactional law documents. The class will run on Tuesday evenings from March 14th – April 25th (with no class on April 18th). This year, one week will be online and the remaining classes will be held from 5:45 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Suffolk Law in Boston. For more information about the LRIP course, go to http://llne.org/legalresearchinstruction/intro_course/ or contact Brian Flaherty at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The LLNE Service Committee is providing two scholarships to cover the cost of registration. Applicants must be public librarians from the New England area. For more information and to apply, go to http://llne.org/committees/service/. Please send applications to Nicole Dyszlewski at email@example.com by Thursday, March 2, 2017. If you have questions, please contact the co-chairs of the Service Committee, Joshua LaPorte (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jessica Jones (email@example.com).
We encourage all LLNE members to share this scholarship opportunity with their local public libraries and any public librarians that would be interested in this excellent professional development opportunity.
