Fellows Program

Law Library Fellows Program

The University of Arizona School of Information Resources and Library Science and the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library of the James E. Rogers College of Law offer a two-year fellowship in law librarianship for lawyers seeking to become law librarians.

Graduates receive a Master of Arts from the University of Arizona's School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS).

Fellows candidates must have completed a Juris Doctorate and be admitted to the SIRLS program before applying for a fellowship. Benefits include tuition and the opportunity to work in the Law Library twenty hours a week learning all aspects of law library practice.

In addition to the basic SIRLS curriculum, the following law library courses are required:

  • Law Library Practice & Administration (IRLS 681E)
  • Teaching Legal Research (IRLS 689A)
  • Advanced Legal Research (LAW 689) if not completed previously in law school

Professional Resources

Fellows are encouraged to become student members in the law librarians professional association, the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL), to begin meeting colleagues and to discover opportunities for committee and special interest section involvement. Check out the AALL Law Library Careers web page for helpful information on getting that first job and more.
