AALL’s groundbreaking 2007 State-by-State Report on Authentication of Online Legal Resources, followed by our National Summit, have established AALL as the national leader in advocating for the authentication and preservation of online legal information.
This exciting program, “A Vision for the Future: Authenticated and Official Online Legal Resources,” will give you an opportunity to hear about the progress we’ve made since the Summit; what to expect as the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) prepares for the first reading of the draft Authentication and Preservation of State Electronic Legal Materials Act this July; and how you can help promote these important issues in your own state.
During this timely program, our expert speakers will discuss the progress AALL has made since the release of the 2007 report:
- Emily Janoski-Haehlen, Chair of AALL’s Electronic Legal Information Access & Citation Committee, will describe the findings of the 2009-2010 updates to the 2007 report. The updates revealed that, as a result of our report, a number of states have recognized the importance of authentication and official status, and have added authentic and official notations to their legal information.
- Barbara Bintliff, Reporter to the NCCUSL Drafting Committee, will describe some of the issues that the committee has grappled with in its discussions, and update us on the current status of the draft act.
- Mary Alice Baish, AALL Director of Government Relations, will describe how you can get involved in promoting authentication and permanent public access in your state, including by joining your State Working Group.
The authentication and preservation of online legal resources is a key policy goal for AALL, and we hope you’ll join us for this important update!
“A Vision for the Future: Authenticated and Official Online Legal Resources” (C3) will be held on Sunday, July 11 from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in CCC-Room 201-203.
