From a recent email sent to the AALL State, Court & County SIS <firstname.lastname@example.org> mailing list:
The “CALL FOR PAPERS” HAS BEGUN!
Have you been thinking of writing an article of interest to law librarians? Need a push to get started? Well, here it is.
The AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers Committee is soliciting articles in three categories:
Open Division: for active and retired AALL members and law librarians with five or more years of professional experience.
New Members Division: for recent graduates and AALL members who have become law librarians since July 1, 2003.
Student Division: for students in library, information management or law school. Participants in this division need not be members of AALL.
The winner in each division receives $750 generously donated by LexisNexis plus the opportunity to present the winning paper at a program during the AALL Annual Meeting in Portland! Winning papers are also considered for publication in the Association’s prestigious Law Library Journal.
A list of previous winners is available at the Call for Papers web site. This list can give you an idea of the range of topics that law librarians have chosen. The web site also has additional information about the competition, including information on how to submit your entry and and application form. That web site is at: http://www.aallnet.org/about/award_call_for_papers.asp.
Articles in the Open and New Members Division must be submitted by March 1, 2008.
Articles in the Student Division must be submitted by April 15, 2008
