Call for Poster Presentations

Is Open Access an Answer for Access to Justice?

University of North Texas Open Access Symposium 2019

The University of North Texas Libraries and the UNT Dallas College of Law have seen an enthusiastic response to their call for proposals for the 10th annual UNT Open Access Symposium, to be held at the UNT Dallas College of Law. The event program will be released soon, filled with sessions now spanning two days (May 17–18), the organizers look forward to providing a special opportunity for students to present their work at the symposium—during a poster session on May 17.

Thanks to the generosity of the organizers of this year’s symposium, we expect to offer a prize of $100 to presenter of the audience’s favorite poster.

We invite brief proposals for posters to address questions such as:

  • Is open access to primary legal sources necessary for access to justice? If so, what is required?
  • Is open access to legal analysis and guidance necessary for access to justice?
  • What is the role of information professionals as mediators of resources to best serve their communities?
  • What are best practices for courts, the bar, and legal aid providers to use open access to legal information to promote access to justice?

Please include a title and abstract (no more than 250 words) in your submission to by March 1, 2019.  Invitations to participate will be issued by mid-March.
