More on AALS

To piggy-back on Lisa's post today on getting the most out of AALS, I wanted to post an e-mail that was on the listserv from Herb Ramy reminding all of us of days/times/rooms for the sessions at AALS.  (Amy Jarmon)

Hello everyone,

Just a quick reminder that the AALS Section on Academic Support will be presenting our first section award to Kent Lollis during the section breakfast on January 5th.  The breakfast begins at 7:00 AM in the Grand Salon 9 & 12, First Floor, Hilton New Orleans, Riverside.  This is a separate fee event, so please be sure to purchase your tickets in advance.  Tickets are available online through the AALS Website (pre-registration is required) and at the AALS meeting site until Friday evening, January 4th, if space is available.  No tickets for the breakfast will be sold at the door.

In addition to the section breakfast and the awards ceremony, here is an updated list (including locations) of other events related to our section:

 

Poster Presentations

Saturday, January 5th, 1:30 – 2:30 PM

Court Assembly, Third Floor, Hilton New Orleans Riverside

 

Sunday, January 6, 4:00–5:45 p.m.

AALS Section Program, Assessing Our Students, Our Success and Ourselves

Grand Ballroom C, First Floor, Hilton New Orleans Riverside

 

In response to a growing need within the legal academy, many institutions and individuals have developed programs to assure the success of law students as well as techniques to assess those programs. Increasingly, law schools are interested in institutional assessment but lack the expertise to reach beyond the obvious measures to fully evaluate the relationships between programs and outcomes. Each of these presentations highlights a different aspect of assessment to inform participants about sources of existing data, methods of gathering additional information, and uses of that information to create new programs and assess existing ones.

 

Section Business Meeting, Windsor, Third Floor, Hilton New Orleans Riverside

Sunday, January 6, 7:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Court Assembly, Third Floor, Hilton New Orleans Riverside

 

The Section Business Meeting did not appear in the AALS Preliminary Program or in the programs that were mailed to AALS members.  It does appear in the online version of the program.

I look forward to seeing all of you in New Orleans!

Sincerely,

Herb Ramy, Section Chair
