Charitable Giving Guidelines

From its inception, LLNE has developed a tradition of support and service for its members. The major organizational goals are to promote the profession of law librarianship in the legal and library communities, and to provide members with opportunities for continuing education and networking. LLNE, through its activities and programs, has helped to establish valuable relationships between its members and the legal institutions of New England.  Further, LLNE wishes to help improve the New England community by providing volunteer service, donations and gifts.
