In May of this year, the Legal Division’s Student Relations Committee launched a contest for people currently enrolled in library school. This essay contest asked the question, “Why do you want to be a law librarian/legal information professional?” We received many stellar responses, but only ten could be chosen as the recipients of a one-year SLA student-level membership.
Please join me in congratulating and welcoming the newest members of the Legal Division!
- Neel Agrawal, University of Washington

Thank you on behalf of the Student Relations Committee:
