AALS Annual Meeting

Tomorrow, I’ll be heading to Washington, D.C. for the Annual Meeting of the Association for American Law Schools.  The four-day conference should be engaging, as law schools continue to grapple with the challenges presented by the economic turmoil of the past several years.  I’m particularly looking forward to an all-day workshop titled “The Future of the Legal Profession and Legal Education: Changes in Law Practice: Implications for Legal Education.”  It will be a good opportunity for me to compare some of the things that we are doing to respond to the changing marketplace with best practices at other law schools.

We’ll also be  hosting two events in D.C.  On Wednesday, January 4, our Alumni Association will be hosting a reception for area alumni.  The reception will be from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the offices of Dickstein Shapiro, 1825 Eye Street., N.W.  Then, on Thursday, January 5, our Ronald H. Brown Center for Civil Rights and Economic Development will be hosing its annual reception honoring minority faculty and deans.  All are welcome to join us at 7:00 p.m. in the Truman Room at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park (the site of the AALS Annual Meeting).  To rsvp to either reception, contact Assistant Dean Claire McKeever at mckeevec@stjohns.edu.
