Lawyers in Libraries 2020

Lawyers in Libraries Logo

As part of Law Day 2020, Montana public libraries are participating in a statewide "Lawyers in Libraries" event where a local lawyer comes to the library to give a talk about the importance of the law in modern society, as well as to help connect patrons to legal resources. 

For Librarians:

For librarians interested in hosting this program at their library, please review:

  • Library and Lawyer Event Responsibilities

    • The State Library is working with the Montana Lawyers magazine to find volunteer attorneys to work with libraries for this event. The State Library will try to match an attorney with each interested library, but it is not guaranteed
