The current chair of LLAM’s Placement Committee is Tonya Baroudi, Law Librarian at the Prince George’s County Law Library. Tonya has served admirably in this capacity for several years.
The Placement Committee serves to communicate career and volunteer opportunities to members by posting announcements to LLAM’s discussion list. Responsibilities include monitoring national and regional law library association websites and listserves, and state and federal government websites, for appropriate job announcements, then forwarding them to LLAM members in a timely fashion. Several re-posting requests are made and handled accordingly. Job listings are free and are also accepted from employment agencies. Revisions and additions to committee procedures are made as necessary as well as updates to the placement brochure. Placement brochures are forwarded to local campus job fairs and LLAM’s incoming President.
To date in 2010, 170 jobs have been posted. See statistics below:
