The AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers Committee promotes the scholarship of AALL members and of students through its annual “Call for Papers” competition. Papers, which may be submitted by active or retired AALL members, or by students in library, information management or law school, may address any subject relevant to law librarianship.

Papers may be submitted in any of the following categories:

  • Open Division: Active and Retired AALL members who have been members for five or more years.
  • New Member Division: for recent graduates and AALL members who have been in the profession for fewer than five years.
  • Short Form Division: for AALL members; articles in this category will be shorter than a traditional scholarly article and may be appropriate for publication in AALL Spectrum.
  • Student Division: Those enrolled in library school, information management school or the equivalent, or in law school, during the Fall 2019 or Spring 2020 semester. Entrants in the Student Division need not be members of AALL.

DEADLINES: Entries for the Open, New Member, and Short Division must be submitted by March 1, 2020. Student Division must be submitted by May 15, 2020.
