- At the AALL conference in Portland, Oregon last week, Thomson West issued a white paper entitled Partnership and Solutions for Preparing Job-Ready Attorneys. This paper is based on a survey of 224 people who are law firm librarians, development directors, attorney supervisors, and newer attorneys. The respondents work at organizations ranging from solo practitioners' offices to large law firms. The paper focuses on what law librarians should be teaching students to prepare them for the practice of law and what law firm attorneys wished they had known before they graduated. There is a quick overview of the survey results at the beginning of the paper.
