Target Audience: Law librarians interested in access and use of state online legal resources
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify the states that have designated their online legal resources as official and that have authenticated those online legal resources.
2. Participants will be prepared to advocate the passage of a NCCUSL-prepared uniform law or model act for enactment in their states.

AALL has prepared the legal community for the future! Through its efforts, including its groundbreaking State-by-State Report on Authentication of Online Legal Resources in 2007, AALL began a movement to answer this question: "How trustworthy are state-level primary legal resources on the web?" AALL followed the report with its very important National Summit on Authentic Legal Information in the Digital Age, held in April 2007. The 2007 State-by-State Report has been updated by your law librarian colleagues, and those updates were released in the fall of 2009. Recognizing the importance of and the need to resolve this issue, the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) organized a committee to draft a uniform law. AALL's efforts must continue NOW to help us reach the future, and you can help. Join your colleagues to hear the progress that some states made between the publication of the 2007 report and the 2009 updates, to gain insight from the law librarian who is serving as the reporter with the NCCUSL Drafting Committee, and to learn how you can advocate the passage of the NCCUSL uniform law or model act in your state in order to address the trustworthiness of state-level primary legal resources.
