SRLN Brief: Academic Law Library - Public Library Partnerships (SRLN 2015)

As noted in the American Association of Law Libraries Access to Justice White Paper, legal research instruction has always been core to academic librarianship. One role for academic law librarians in promoting access to justice is to provide training to public librarians about online legal resources and the unauthorized practice of law. See, for example, the Colorado Law Project, hosted by the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, and the South Carolina Circuit Riders Legal Research Training Program for non-law librarians.
