State Law Library of Montana News Release
Chief Justice Mike McGrath has announced the Supreme Court has selected Lisa Mecklenberg Jackson to serve as the State Law Librarian.
Jackson's appointment is effective October 2, 2013. Jackson was selected from a pool of three finalists and replaces Judy Meadows who was the State Law Librarian from September 1984 until her retirement in May 2013.
The library provides access to legal information to Montana's courts, legislature, state officers and employees, attorneys, and members of the general public.
"Her broad based background in library science, as a practicing attorney, together with her vision for making the State Law Library more accessible in an electronic age combine to make Lisa an excellent choice to serve as the next librarian," said McGrath.
Prior to being appointed as the law librarian, Jackson was the in-house counsel for Equity Management, Incorporated in Missoula, and as a librarian for Missoula Public Library and for Legislative Services.
She received her law degree from the University of North Dakota and her master's in library and information science from the University of Washington. Jackson is a member of a number of professional activities and a community volunteer on many levels.
