Our Story

We are dedicated to promoting our profession and improving the provision of legal information in our various workplaces.

Our members are employed in a variety of sectors including academic institutions, courts, government departments, law firms and other private organisations.

We liaise with the national ALLA and interstate Divisions on matters of mutual concern.

The Australian Law Librarians' Group (Vic) Inc was established on the 10th February 1970.

On March 5th 2007, the Australian Law Librarians' Group (Vic) Inc officially became the Australian Law Librarians' Association (Vic) Inc.


This name change follows a special resolution that was proposed, voted on and passed by the membership at a Special General Meeting held in Melbourne on 22nd September 2007.
