The membership term is based on LLAGNY's fiscal year, which runs from July 1st  to June 30th, rather than from the anniversary of the date an individual joins the association, therefore membership dues cannot be pro-rated if submitted later in the membership year.

The classes of membership and annual dues, effective July 1, 2015, are:

Examples: academic, court, law firm, bar association, corporate legal department, independent or government law librarian.

Associate Member ($50). Any person interested in law librarianship who is not directly connected with a law library or other library with a separately maintained law section. Examples: Office administrator, attorney, paralegal, records manager, law student, information technology personnel, sales/marketing representative, vendor, recruiter, publisher, information broker.

Life Member. The Board of Directors shall nominate for Life Membership any member who has been a Regular Member for at least ten (10) years, but who has retired from active law library employment. Election to Life Membership shall be ballot on a majority vote of the voting membership at any regular meeting of the Association or by ballot in Law Lines.
