The Chicago Legal Tech Innovation Showcase, brought to you by the Chicago Bar Association’s Future of the Profession Committee and Chicago Kent School of Law is October 24th.  Submissions are due by September 29th, 2017.

A panel of distinguished judges will choose five “Best in Show” awards in each of the 2 awards categories: Law Firm/Legal Services and Company/Product/Service. Each award winner will present a 5 minute pitch at the Chicago Kent Auditorium on October 24 and have an opportunity to exhibit during the event.

The Chicago Legal Tech Innovator Showcase will promote the law firms, legal service providers, and companies that are using technology to improve legal services in the Chicago area and highlight those whose innovations are exceptional.

AALL Government Relations Office Advocacy Training and Virtual Lobby Day

If you were unable to attend Emily Feltren’s Advocacy Update on April 6, here is a copy of the presentation she gave. CALL thanks Emily for taking the time to meet with us in person and for sharing her presentation with our members.

If you’d like another opportunity to attend a Government Relations Office Advocacy Training session, Emily will be conducting an online presentation on Thursday, April 20 at noon. During this online training session, you will learn about the most effective ways to influence your members of Congress. You will also hear about AALL’s top policy priorities, including access to government information, copyright reform, and privacy. You can register for this session here.

If you’d like an opportunity to utilize your advocacy training, you can participate in AALL’s Virtual Lobby Day on Wednesday, April 26. On Virtual Lobby Day, you can help raise the profile of law libraries and AALL’s important policy issues by sending coordinated messages to Capitol Hill through the Government Relations Office’s Legislative Action Center and via social media. If you fill out the AALL Lobby Day survey by April 17, the Government Relations Office will send you personalized tips and information to help maximize your influence.
