[Continuing Education Event] The Frightening Power of Social Media Investigations – a Special Halloween CALL Workshop

The Frightening Power of Social Media Investigations – a Special Halloween CALL Workshop

Have you ever been asked to conduct a social media search on a company or individual, but felt unsure in terms of where to look and what resources to use? Are you not entirely sure what social media is?  Well, you are in luck!  The CALL Continuing Education Committee cordially invites you to a program designed to help you maneuver through the changing landscape of social media – including new platforms and security and transparency policies. Come learn tricks and tips for navigating these resources, how to present your findings and specific areas of law in which this research may be especially useful (such as intellectual property, family law and criminal law).

We hope to see you there!

Community Service Committee school supply donations

The Community Service Committee will once again be collecting school supplies for Chicago Hopes at the September 18th CALL Business Meeting. Chicago HOPES for Kids collaborates with schools, shelters, and communities to establish after-school shelter-based tutoring programs throughout the city. These sessions feature educational support and cultural enrichment activities for Chicago’s school-aged homeless children.

The Committee will also be collecting monetary donations to benefit Blessings in a Backpack, which provides food to elementary school children who are in households under the poverty line. The children receive a “backpack” with food at the end of each school week with enough food for the weekend, a time when many impoverished children go without eating because they aren’t receiving a school breakfast or lunch on those days.

Chicago Hopes Donation Wish List:

Scissors for elementary school age children
Glue or glue sticks
Colored pencils
Rulers
Crayons (boxes of 8 or 16)
Construction paper
Lined paper
Computer paper
Stapler and staples
Tape
Folders
Permanent markers
Highlighters
Dry erase markers
Watercolor paints

The shelter program is also in need of paper cups, craft supplies, and paper towels.

CALL Bulletin, Summer 2014, Issue 232 is now available

The Summer issue of the CALL Bulletin is on newsstands now! In this issue, Maribel Nash passes the President’s torch to Margaret Schilt, Lindsey Carpino gives us a recent library school graduate’s view of the law school jobs market, and Kevin McClure reports on the preservation challenges posed by born-digital federal government documents. There’s also a full summary of the May business meeting, including a roundup of all the award winners. Happy reading!

Illinois Enacts UELMA

On August 26, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed Illinois SB 1941, our state’s version of the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA), into law as Public Act 98-1097. This makes Illinois the 11th state to enact UELMA into law (a complete list of states which have enacted UELMA is available on the AALL Government Relations Committee’s UELMA Resources Page). As we’ve noted in previous posts, the enactment of UELMA will help to ensure that electronically-published official primary law documents in Illinois are authenticated, preserved, and made permanently available to the public.

Thanks to all of the members of CALL and the AALL Government Relations Committee who helped make this happen. Special thanks go out to Keith Ann Stiverson and to Kip Kolkmeier, Lobbyist for the Illinois Library Association, for their efforts in getting the bill through the Illinois General Assembly.

Topic:

Policy Trends Affecting Juvenile Justice

There is a need to transform the juvenile justice system in Illinois. Studies have shown that confinement does not help change behavior. Enhancing fairness for all youth and offering strong community-based resources are needed to help the youth who are caught in the justice system.

Elizabeth Clarke, President and Founder of Juvenile Justice Initiative, will speak about the issues, challenges, and progress for juvenile justice reform.

About the Speaker:

Ms. Clarke is currently the founder and President of the Juvenile Justice Initiative, a statewide advocacy organization to promote fair, rational and effective juvenile justice policies in Illinois.

Prior to developing the Juvenile Justice Initiative, Ms. Clarke served as Juvenile Justice Counsel for the Office of the Cook County Public Defender for six years, and served for 15 years in the Office of the State Appellate Defender, including appointments as Legislative Liaison and Juvenile Justice Coordinator.

Meeting Sponsor: Practising Law Institute.

Door Prizes: 2 giftcards will be raffled during the meeting courtesy of LexisNexis. Check out their InfoPro for news and tips for librarians.
