The AALS One-Day Workshop will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2012 in Washington, DC during the Annual Meeting. The day’s title is: “Got ASP? Leveraging Academic Support Principles and Programs to Meet Strategic Institutional Goals.” The event will run from 8:45 AM – 5:00 PM and includes many speakers, moderators, and dynamic presentations.
AALS will hold a Luncheon that day, with a fee of $65. At the lunch, Darby Dickerson, Dean of Texas Tech University School of Law, will introduce Stephen Zack, ABA President. He will address the importance of diversity to legal education and the legal profession and why providing practical skills training in law school benefits the profession and greater community. I encourage you to attend the presentations and the lunch – it should be a terrific day.
The Section on Academic Support will hold its Business Meeting from 5:00 PM – 5:15 PM in the same room following the One-day Workshop.
In lieu of the full day program and lunch on Saturday, the Section on AS will not be holding a breakfast or a Section program.
You may register for the One-Day Workshop and the luncheon by using the registration materials in your Annual Meeting program booklet or by going online to the AALS website. (The AALS Workshop appears on pages 80 – 83 of the booklet). Please note that when registering online for both the One-Day Workshop and the Luncheon, you may receive a prompt asking if you should override the conflicting events. The answer is “yes.”
Thanks for your support and anticipated participation.
