Funds from LFWC will be used to enhance or supplement Law Library services beyond those that are provided within the current budget. The Law Library Committee will be asked for suggestions on how best to use such funds. Possible concepts include digitization projects, enhanced services for self-represented litigants, and in-house continuing legal education programs for attorneys.
