Announcement from the SLA Legal Division Student Relations Committee Chair, Grace Rosales:


Do you like hearing about the latest legal cases or staying on top business and legal trends?  Then consider being a Law Librarian!   Law librarians work in many settings including law schools, law firms, government libraries and many public and private companies.  They go by many titles:  law librarian, researcher or information analyst. 


If you’re interested in learning more about this exciting field, then join the SLA Legal Division.  SLA Legal Division offers a wide variety of online education opportunities designed to sharpen professional skills throughout your career.  Previous webinar topics have included using social media tools for research, business communication, and career development/job search.  You can also find a mentor to help you learn more about law librarianship.


As an incentive to join Legal Division, the Student Relations Committee will sponsor a contest to win 10 SLA student memberships.  Just write a short paragraph describing your interest in the legal information profession and send this to SLA Student Relations Committee Chair Grace Rosales ([log in to unmask]) by Friday, June 22, 2012


Winning entries will receive a one-year free membership with SLA.  We will need a receipt of payment and we will send you reimbursement for payment of your membership.  If you are currently a member, we will pay for your next renewal.  Winners will be notified by Friday, June 29.  Please note that if you are a winner we would like to get a photo of you to include with the winning entries along with a signed waiver so that we can use it for future promotional materials. 


SLA Legal Division also offers several grants to attend the annual conference.  (Including the Early Career Conference Award, jointly with SLA Europe). The conference creates an environment for networking, communication, learning and other developmental opportunities for information professionals. Student membership is only $40.  This includes one chapter and one division.  Here’s the membership link.:
