You must work for a really big firm Schultz.  I didn't know there were too many people working as law librarians since everything went online.

My firm has about 100 attorneys, so we're considered "mid-size".  Considering how law schools don't teach their students how to actually do research and find information, and most definitely not how to search online databases efficiently, the law librarian profession is very secure.  The medium may have changed a bit, but people still need alot of help in accessing, searching and obtaining information.

You'd be surprised how many attorneys who come out of law school with no idea of where to find the most basic legal information.  They may have had wild and free access to Westlaw and/or Lexis while in school, but when faced with a client who refuses to pay for computer assisted legal research, they're lost.

That's where we come in Smiley

Congrats my friend, may the legal research always support your side (or at least give you enough to debunk the opposing counsel).

In any event I was talking with my professor the other day in my tax class and he agrees more and more that accountants are essentially becoming lawyers without JDs. Its a scary thought.

However, I digress, congrats again!

Scarier thought: laywers (and judges) are essentially becoming accountants with JDs.

What's the difference between a philosopher and a lawyer?  The philosoper is interested in truth.

Who's the patron saint of lawyers?  There is none, tell's you something.
