42 AALL SPECTRUM | WWW.AALLNET.ORG The Law Librarians' Society of Washington, DC connects legal research instruction and practice across all sectors of law librarianship to better prepare students and incoming associates for practice. BY EMILY R. FLORIO & KRISTINA J. ALAYAN A s with most American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) chap- ters, the Law Librarians' Society of Washington, DC (LLSDC) has a mix of members from across all sectors (e.g., academic, corporate, law firm, government). To accommodate the interests and needs of these different groups, LLSDC offers several special interest sections (SISs), which are listed on their website. (Learn more about LLSDCs SISs at bit.ly/ND19LLSDCsis.) For AALL members, this is a familiar model that allows SIS members to engage with one another and develop educational pro- gramming opportunities within mutual areas of interest and expertise. This model naturally led to more siloed conversations that may have benefitted from cross- pollination with other SIS and LLSDC members. One such exchange included the widely recognized need for law students to be better prepared for practice. BRIDGING ALL THE GAPS: AN ONGOING DISCUSSION COMMUNITY
