Have you been thinking of writing an article of interest to law librarians?  Need a push to get started?  Well, here it is.

The AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers Committee is soliciting articles in three categories:

Open Division:  for active and retired AALL members and law librarians with five or more years of professional experience;

New Members Division:  for recent graduates and AALL members who have become law librarians since July 1, 2006.

Student Division:  Participants in this division need not be members of AALL. To be eligible in this category, you must have been enrolled in law school, or in a library school, information management, or an equivalent program, either in the Fall 2010 or Spring 2011 semester.

The winner in each division receives $750 generously donated by LexisNexis plus the opportunity to present the winning paper at a program during the AALL Annual Meeting in Denver!  Winning papers are also considered for publication in the Association’s prestigious Law Library Journal.

Application form and details, including a list of past winners, can be found at the Call for Papers web site

Selected winning papers from earlier competitions can also be found at This list can give you an idea of the range of topics that law librarians have chosen.

Articles in the Open and New Members Division must be submitted by March 1, 2011.

Articles in the Student Division must be submitted by April 15, 2011.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of the AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers Committee:
