The following e-mail from Louis Schulze (Chair) appeared on the Academic Support Section listserv for AALS to update ASP'ers on the status of LSASP and some assistance that is needed to update the website:
As you may know, the law school academic success project website is maintained by the AALS Section
on Academic Support. A few weeks ago, some questions arose on the ASP
listserv regarding how to gain access to that website. After some
troubleshooting, it now appears that those matters have been resolved, and we
are moving forward with continued improvements to the website.
As Chair of the Section, I’m happy to report that OJ Salinas, of UNC Law, has agreed to serve as Senior Editor of the website and Chair of the Section’s Website committee. You will be noticing some changes to the website in the near future, and I write today to ask for your assistance with some of these changes:
(1) Any person who recently requested access to the website should now have access. You should have received an email approving your request. If you recently requested access and have not
been approved, please contact OJ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(2) We need assistance with the “Contacts” section of the website. Could you please check your information and your school’s information for accuracy and report any changes to OJ? Also, if you were recently granted access to the website and would like to be added to the
contacts section of our website, please forward to OJ at email@example.com your school;
title; telephone number; and email. If you have one available, a photograph would be helpful (head shot is best for the website). If you have an updated photograph that you would like added to the website, please forward it to OJ, as well.
(3) We would like to update the portion of the website dealing with conferences. If you know of an upcoming ASP conference, could you please report it to OJ? If you recently presented at a
conference and would be willing to share your materials, could you email OJ? We want to continue to use the website as an ASP resource, and conference materials are valuable resources.
Additional changes are on the horizon for the website, and we look forward to rolling those out in the near future. In the meantime, I’m sure I speak for our community when I thank Jon McClanahan of UNC Law for chairing the website committee for several years now and doing a wonderful
job. Thanks also go to OJ Salinas for his recent work and for agreeing to chair the committee in the future. Finally, our entire community owes a huge debt of gratitude to Ruth Ann McKinney for the hours upon hours of work she invested in creating the LSASP website, which is an incredible
