About Us

Who we are

LAW LIBRARIANS OF NEW ENGLAND was organized in 1946, when 17 law librarians gathered to meet each other and to consider the advantages of forming a professional association. The group was formally accepted as a chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries on June 24, 1948. Since then, members have served as officers in the national association and LLNE has been host, in Boston, to several national conventions.

LLNE has grown to over 250 members representing more than 50 libraries in the six New England states. Members come from all segments of the legal community, including academic libraries, federal and state courts and agencies, county and public law libraries, corporate legal departments, publishers, vendors, and private law firms.
