At last night's LLAW meeting, Kim Graba, librarian at the Racine Correctional Institution (RCI), gave us a great inside look at what's it's like working in a prison library!

What was your biggest take-away from the presentation?

As inmates are often working with public defenders with a large caseload, they seek additional legal assistance. As a librarian working in a legal capacity, have you come across difficult situations where you were urged to provide legal advice/assistance rather than legal information?

Story
Tagline
Promotes the practice of law librarianship in the state of Wisconsin.
Introduction
The Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin (LLAW) is a non-profit organization established for educational, informational and social purposes. Its objectives are to promote librarianship; develop the usefulness of libraries and the skill of their users; cultivate the profession of law librarianship; foster a spirit of cooperation among members; and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and resources on a state-wide level.

LLAW became a chapter of the American Association of Law Libraries in June 1982. Today over 100 members represent all segments of the legal library community, including private law firm, corporate, county, state, federal, and academic librarians.

LLAW meets quarterly to discuss business, to listen to speakers on educational topics, and to network with colleagues. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. For location and details of meetings, please see Programs. In addition to our own meetings, LLAW and its members participate in library and legal conferences at the state and national level.
