Report on Public's Access to Legal Information & Assistance in WI

The Public Access to Legal Information Committee of the Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin (LLAW) has just released the results of a year-long study of the public access to legal information and assistance in Wisconsin. This 40-page study compares access levels across libraries and courts, as well as noting success stories in the area of legal assistance to the public.

This study is extremely thorough and very well written. Beginning on page 19, suggestions are offered for enhancing services to the public. They are divided into recommendations for public law librarians; public & academic librarians; and to the Circuit Courts of Wisconsin.

The report was the brainchild of Paula Seeger, Librarian at the Dane County Legal Resource Center and chair of the PALI Committee. You may also recognize Paula's two blogs, DCLRC Blawg and Burning Ears Blawg.

The report is available on the LLAW Website. Print copies are also available for $5.00 each by contacting Paula.
