The Evolving Role of the Law Librarian: Partners’ Perspectives
We hope you will join us for the PLL Summit on Saturday, July 21, 2012, just prior to the AALL Annual Meeting. If you do, here is one of the exciting panels to help you prepare for a leadership role within your organization. Last year, Greg Castanias was our luncheon speaker and his passionate plea for librarians to treat their work as a service and not a place was one of the most talked about speeches of the annual meeting. Don’t miss what is sure to be an interesting discussion.
Panel #2: The Evolving Role of the Law Librarian: Partners’ Perspectives
Coordinator, Joan Jarosek
Change is the ongoing theme for the business of law, the law firm environment and law libraries. As the “new normal” becomes more clearly defined, how will the role of law librarians change? How will law librarians continue to bring value to their organizations? What will the librarians’ role be to advance their firms’ strategic objectives? Our panel of law firm leaders will offer their views on how they see our roles transforming as these questions and others will be explored. The panelists are:
- Greg Castanias, Partner, Jones Day
- Eric Charlton, Partner, Hiscock & Barclay
- Brian M. Gaff, Partner, Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP
