ABOUT US

The committee will use the "AALL Principles and Core Values Concerning Public Information on Government Websites" [hereinafter "Principles and Core Values"] to identify website characteristics and citation rules that represent best practices, and to encourage all branches of government to apply these best practices in the creation and maintenance of electronic legal information.

The committee will review judicial, legislative and executive branch websites at all levels of government to identify best practices and will promote the application of best practices in the creation and maintenance of electronic legal information. The committee will develop and maintain a website documenting the status of state primary legal materials with respect to the Principles and Core Values. The committee will also monitor technological advances and legislation that affect the creation and maintenance of electronic legal information and serve as a resource for entities seeking to apply best practices in creating and maintaining electronic legal information.

In addition, the committee will monitor citation initiatives and activities undertaken by the judiciary, the bar, the ABA, the Bluebook editors and other groups. The committee will use various means, including presentations, articles and the AALL Universal Citation Guide to advocate for citation reform with the judiciary, the bar, governmental organizations, and other entities. The committee will also serve as a resource for jurisdictions and other groups considering citation issues.

The committee shall be responsible for advising the Association and its membership about issues relating to electronic legal information access and citation, and may be called upon to collaborate with other committees, including the Government Relations Committee.
