NOCALL Student Trustee Application
The Executive Board of the Northern California Association of Law Libraries (NOCALL) has established an annual Student Trustee role to expose BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) students to law librarianship and professional engagement through NOCALL Board mentorship. This is an exciting opportunity for a BIPOC student to get an inside view of law librarianship and valuable mentoring time. Most law librarian positions do not require a J.D. degree, and law librarianship involves many different types of library roles (including cataloging, reference, public service, acquisitions, circulation, preservation, computing services and educational technology), so we encourage BIPOC students interested in any of these areas to apply.
The NOCALL Student Trustee is an opportunity for a BIPOC student currently enrolled in a MLIS program. Desired qualifications include enthusiasm for learning about law librarianship, a desire to participate in NOCALL virtual meetings and activities, and a willingness to share their perspective as a student.
Application forms must be submitted by September 14, 2020. Late applications may be considered at the discretion of the NOCALL Academic Relations Committee.
The term of office for the Student Trustee is one year, commencing on September 28, 2020. The primary responsibilities are to attend (virtually at this time) and participate in NOCALL Board meetings and events, and to bring his/her perspective as a BIPOC student to the Board.
The Student Trustee will have the opportunity to learn about law librarianship from academic, government, and law firm librarians, as well as from other information professionals. The Student Trustee will also have valuable networking and mentorship opportunities. The Student Trustee is eligible to apply for all NOCALL grants.
