Governing Documents

The Minnesota Association of Law Libraries was organized in 1955 with ten members as a regional chapter of AALL, the American Association of Law Libraries.


MALL was established for educational and informational purposes. It is conducted as a non-profit association to promote law librarianship and to foster a spirit of cooperation among the members of the profession. Today, the MALL membership numbers over 150. MALL members represent institutions from all segments of the legal community, including: academic law libraries; county law libraries; corporate legal department and law firm libraries; federal, state, agency, and court libraries.

The Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws are the principal documents governing the Association. MALL also created a Strategic Plan in 2006. Committee Chairs are guided in their activities by the Operating Guidelines.

The Bylaws were amended in 2017. The 2014 version of the bylaws are available here
