The PLL Summit is a venture by the private law library community to explore ways to embrace change, demonstrate value, and learn about leading-edge trends. Originally begun as a two-year project, the Summit is now in its fourth year and continues to be a leading force in empowering private law firm librarians to be change agents within their organizations. Summits are held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Association of Law Libraries.
Goals of the Summit

- Develop best practices and practice models for new law firm requirements through research and consensus..
- Offer learning opportunities on how to use tools that will keep the library/research center at the forefront of law firm service.
- Cultivate new ideas and experimental solutions.
- Cast the debate for how law firm libraries should operate and meet new challenges in this new environment.
