Scholarships are available to assist individuals studying to become law librarians as either a library or law school student, or to library school graduates seeking an advanced degree in a related field. Candidates should apply for more than one scholarship when appropriate. Preference is given to AALL members, but scholarships are not restricted to members. Applicants with law library experience are also given preference, but it is not required. Evidence of financial need must be submitted. The LexisNexis John R. Johnson Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to individuals seeking a degree from an accredited library or law school, and who intend to have a career in legal information, or to a library school graduate seeking an advanced degree in a related field.
Guided by our mission, vision, and values—and supported by our bylaws, policies, and resolutions—AALL works hard to achieve our strategic goals to advance the profession and support the professional growth of our members. AALL is committed to providing opportunities for professional growth. Each year, the Association awards scholarships to assist individuals in meeting their educational goals in the field of legal information. Individuals should apply for all of the scholarships for which they qualify.
