Welcome to ALLA. The Australian Law Librarians' Association.
The Australian Law Librarians' Association (ALLA) aims to promote a network for law librarians, provide forums for continuing education and advocate on behalf of the interests of legal libraries and librarians in Australia.
Established in 1969, the Association has grown from an informal group of six interested law librarians to a national association with over 600 members in all states and territories. ALLA represents librarians and information professionals working in courts, universities, government departments, law firms and professional association.
In September 2006 members voted on a special resolution to change the name of the then Australian Law Librarians' Group (ALLG) to the Australian Law Librarians' Association (ALLA) – this became official on October 26th, 2006. In September 2011, members passed an ordinary resolution to transition to a national model of membership.
The Association aims to promote and provide a national focus for law librarianship and to support the interests of law libraries, collections and legal information services to both legal and public communities. We have divisions in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia.
Members of the ALLA have access to continuing professional development, local networking events, publisher and vendor trials, a members only wiki with legal research Q&A, a national publishers' liaison, podcasts and a national network of experienced, enthusiastic and professional law librarians.
