All public librarians are encouraged to apply for a scholarship, sponsored by the LLNE Access to Justice Committee, to attend our chapter’s Legal Research Instruction Program.
The Legal Research Instruction Program (LRIP) is a six-week seminar geared towards public librarians interested in learning more about law librarianship. Each week, a different aspect of legal research is covered — everything from an overview of the U.S. legal system, to finding business transactional documents. The class will run on Wednesday evenings from March 27 — May 1, 2019. The six classes will be held from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Suffolk University Law Library in Boston. For more information about the LRIP course, go to https://llne.org/legalresearchinstruction/ or contact Brian Flaherty directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The LLNE Access to Justice Committee is providing two scholarships to cover the cost of registration. Applicants must be public (non-law) librarians from the New England region. For more information and to apply, go to https://llne.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/LLNE_Intro_Scholarship_2019.docx.
Please send applications to Mike VanderHeijden at email@example.com by Friday, March 15, 2019. Scholarship recipients will be notified by Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
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.
