You’re invited!!!

You’re invited to join the LLAM LRI (Legal Research Institute) Committee for 2015 – 2016. We’ve already begun to gather volunteers for the committee, and would like your help!

This year’s LRI, a cybersecurity symposium, will be held in March / April of 2016, and will be co-sponsored with the University of Maryland – Baltimore’s Health Sciences & Human Services Library. The targeted audience will be librarians, IT personnel, government administrators, and attorneys interested in cybersecurity issues. We need help with planning, logistics, and implementation. You can determine your level of participation based on your interests and availability – from intensive planning to hosting a table at the event.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Camilla Tubbs at ctubbs[at]law.umaryland.edu. Camilla Tubbs (LLAM Vice President / President–Elect) and C.J. Pipins (LLAM Secretary / Treasurer) will be serving as co-chairs of the LRI Committee.

Our LRI Committee will begin work soon!

– James Durham, LLAM President
