For many years, the requirement that a law librarian possess a law degree was almost exclusively seen in job postings for academic positions, usually at a supervisory level. However, this requirement is now often associated with even entry-level jobs in all types of law libraries.

A panel of librarians will provide differing viewpoints in answering these and other questions regarding the place of the JD in the profession.
