Continuing Education Committee Presents: How MAALL States Deal with Legislative History

Presented by: Benjamin Keele, Research and Instructional Librarian & Lecturer in Law, and Lee Little, Research and Instructional Librarian & Adjunct Lecturer in Law, Ruth Lilly Law Library, Indiana University McKinney School of Law

Description: When one thinks of legislative history, they are likely to think first of the U.S. Congress. However, state legislatures vary widely in the legislative documentation they produce, and state judiciaries have different views on how that history should be used when interpreting statutes. This session will review the availability of legislative history materials and judicial use of those materials for each MAALL member state.

When: Thursday, March 4th, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.

Where: At your desk. Registrants will receive webinar details prior to the program.

Cost: This program is free to members.
