The Australian Law Librarians' Association (ALLA) (New South Wales) is a division of a national body of librarians who
work in libraries which either specialise in law, or which have a major legal component.
The Division consists of librarians from across the law library spectrum - the courts, the universities, government departments, both state and Commonwealth, law firms and legal publishers. The Division welcomes membership by professional library staff, as well as representatives from related groups such as publishers, and lawyers.
The Division aims to provide a focus for law librarianship, and for legal and business information, and to promote the interests of law libraries, law collections and legal information services in New South Wales.
The (then) Australian Law Librarians' Group was founded in New South Wales in 1969, and has since grown from an informal group of six librarians to an association of over 700 members in state and territory divisions. The NSW Division has a current membership of 122. The NSW Division is incorporated. It receives no government funding.
2012-2013 will see the inclusion of podcasts, webinars and satellite events to allow NSW law librarians outside the Sydney CBD, to participate in our programs.
