ELIGIBILITY Papers may be submitted in any of the following categories: Open Division: Active and Retired AALL members who have been members for five or more years. New Member Division: for recent graduates and AALL members who have been in the profession for fewer than five years. Short Form Division: for AALL members; articles in this category will be shorter than a traditional scholarly article and may be appropriate for publication in AALL Spectrum. Student Division: Those enrolled in library school, information management school or the equivalent, or in law school, during the Fall 2021 or Spring 2022 semester. Entrants in the Student Division need not be members of AALL. If the Committee believes that a paper is more appropriately placed in a division other than the one originally selected by the entrant, it reserves the right, with the entrant’s permission, to place it in a different category.

No paper or portion of a paper that has been published or accepted for publication before March 1, 2021, will be eligible for consideration. A paper may address any subject relevant to law librarianship. It may be scholarly or practical in substance and tone, but the subject should be explored in depth.
