The American Association of Law Libraries  PLL Summit, now in its fourth year,
continues as a vehicle for examining the impact and opportunities presented by
change in the law firm environment.  The Summit will be held on July 13th in Seattle in conjunction with the AALL annual conference.Last year, we looked at changes in the business and practice of
law and envisioned what those changes mean for the future. Joan Axelroth and I  are Co-Chairs of the program.  This year’s Summit, “SOS,Shaping Our Success” we
explore how to take charge, shaping ourselves as well as the services we
provide to meet these new world demands.

Keynote Adam Smith Esq. This year’s Summit with kickoff with a keynote
address graciously sponsored by Thompson Reuters
Bruce MacEwen, more popularly known as Adam Smith, Esq., grabbed the attention
of law firm leaders in 2012 with his “Growth is Dead” series, which was
recently published as a book entitled  “Growth Is Dead: Now What?: Law firms on the brink.”


Morning Panel The keynote is followed by a panel
discussion addressing librarian roles:  how do we identify, adopt and
promote the roles that add value to our organizations?   

David Lat

sponsored by Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, will provide time for
networking and insights into the legal market from the very special and no
doubt humorous and iconoclastic perspective of David Lat, Managing Editor, Above The Law.

Afternoon Sessions. In the afternoon, interactive break-out sessions will
investigate the practical aspects of social media, the art of branding and the user
experience.  The sessions will be repeated twice so that each participant
can benefit from two out of the three programs.
