This year the Australian Law Librarians’ Association (ALLA) is holding its biennial national conference in Hobart, Tasmania, on 24-26 August. The Conference is the major professional and business development event in the Association’s calendar.

The themes of this conference are:

  • How have things changed?
  • Where to from here?
  • Post-covid considerations

There will be library tours and a pre-conference workshop before the Welcome Reception in the Federation Ballroom at the Hotel Grand Chancellor. The packed conference programme includes a number of sessions discussing the conference themes, as well as sponsor presentations and an opportunity to enjoy the array of culinary and cultural highlights of Hobart.

Team ICLR will be in attendance, comprising

  • Kevin Laws, CEO
  • Paul Magrath, Head of Product Development and Online Content
  • Paul Hastings, Account Manager
  • David Cosway, Business Development Manager

Come and find us at our stand in the exhibitors’ hall. Ask us about the latest developments and innovations such as Case Genie in our online platform, ICLR.4 or ask for a demonstration. We look forward to meeting new faces and seeing lots of our old friends from the Australasian and international law library world.
