The Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale Law School is hosting this Virtual Symposium on Citation and the Law - April 22 and 23, 2021.
This FREE symposium will highlight the scholarship of law librarians and faculty interested in issues ranging from the US News and World Reports rankings for scholarly productivity, to link rot, to empirical research in the use of citations, and more. Keynote speaker Fred Shapiro will set the stage with his paper “The Most-Cited Legal Scholars Revisited” to be published in the University of Chicago Law Review. All the papers will be published in a book by the Hein Company.
To quote Legal Reference Services Quarterly editor Mike Chiorazzi, “If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a profession to support a symposium like this. The Yale Law Library, the ALL-SIS Committee on Research and Scholarship, the Boulder Conference workshopping team, and LRSQ all pulled together to make this symposium happen. What has emerged is an impressive collection of first-rate scholarship that advances our understanding of law librarianship and legal information management.”
Please join the sponsors and authors for what we hope will be the first of regularly held symposia encouraging and highlighting law librarians’ research and scholarship.
