Customary and Religious Law Interest Group -- first meeting

All --

Susan Gualtier, Foreign, Comparative and International Law Librarian at LSU Law, has asked that I post this to the TS site. The organizers of CARLIG would like to encourage members of TS to attend the first meeting and take part in this project. If you would like to join them on "My Communities," their page can be found here:

Hello everyone!

I am excited to announce that the FCIL-SIS board has approved a new Customary and Religious Law Interest Group (tentatively going by the acronym "CARLIG"), and would like to invite all of you to participate as we work together to get this new group off the ground. We will be holding an introductory meeting next month at the conference in San Antonio as part of the larger "FCIL-SIS Subject Groups" meeting scheduled for 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. This will give us a chance to meet each other in person, as well as to work out a few details regarding group structure, future projects, potential programming proposals for the Philadelphia conference in 2015, and much more!



Those of us who pitched this idea last summer in Seattle are so excited to see it come to fruition! If you'd like to join our email list, have suggestions, or just want to express interest in advance of the conference, please email me (susan.gualtier@law.lsu.edu), Kelly Buchanan (kbuc@loc.gov), or Lucia Diamond (ldiamond@law.berkeley.edu) and let us know. We are confident that this IG will appeal to many members of AALL, and we hope to come up with some exciting projects and programming on which to work in the coming year!
