  • ABA Section of Dispute Resolution
  • ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law
  • ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources
  • ABA Law Practice Division

In the resolution adopted this week, the ABA urges the Congress "to approve appropriations to the Library of Congress necessary to enable the Law Library of Congress to adequately staff, maintain, modernize, and enhance its services, collections, facilities, digital projects, and outreach efforts."
