Register now for Lawyers for Libraries – Tampa & Los Angeles

Office for Intellectual Freedom

Registration is open for two Lawyers for Libraries regional training institutes – one in Tampa, Florida, Nov. 14, and a newly-announced institute in Los Angeles, Feb. 20, 2009.

To register for an institute, visit the Lawyers for Libraries registration page or call (800) 545-2433 x4226.

Lawyers for Libraries institutes are open to licensed, practicing attorneys retained to represent or advise libraries on legal issues. Attorneys are eligible for Continuing Legal Education credits for attendance. Library trustees or board members who are responsible for establishing library policy also may attend. Librarians may attend (and are encouraged to attend) if they are accompanied by a library attorney.

Please note: the deadline to reserve a discount-rate hotel room at the Tampa DoubleTree Guest Suites (where the institute will be held) is October 22. Click here for more information about hotel and travel for the two institutes.

Over its 11 years of existence, ALA’s Lawyers for Libraries has built a nationwide network of attorneys committed to the defense of the First Amendment freedom to read and the application of constitutional law to library policies, principles, and problems.
