Canadian Association of Law Libraries - Reminder of Scholarship Deadlines

Applications for the Janine Miller Fellowship to attend the Law via the Internet Conference are due on April 18, and applications for funding from the Education Reserve Fund to support attendance at the New Law Librarians’ Institute are due on April 23.

Both of these are from the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL).

Janine Miller was an integral part in the vision and development of the Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII) and served as Project Manager from its inception and later as its Executive Director until her retirement in 2011.

To honour her considerable contribution to the success of this virtual law library, CanLII has established the Janine Miller Fellowship. Its purpose is to provide funding annually for one CALL member to attend the Law via the Internet Conference, an initiative of the Legal Information Institutes worldwide that constitute the Free Access to Law Movement. The next conference is in Ithaca, New York from October 7-9, 2012.

Applicants must be CALL members and:
  • The applicant's résumé, letter of application, and at least two letters of reference will form the basis of selection. In their letter of application, applicants should outline how attendance at the conference will benefit them in their current position and/or in their career as a law librarian.
  • The successful applicant will write a report of the conference for publication in the Canadian Law Library Review.
Applications should be sent to: Ann Marie Melvie, Chair, CALL/ACBD Scholarships and Awards Committee at amelvie AT

The New Law Librarians’ Institute will be held at the University of Western Ontario May 27 to June 1, 2012. CALL members can apply for funding from the Education Reserve Fund to support their attendance at the Institute. Members who wish to apply should do so on or before April 23, 2012.

Applications should also be submitted to Ann Marie Melvie.
