Scholarship Again Focus of AALS

Aals_logo_2 In case anyone still thinks law schools in general suffer from a "trade school mentality," it's worth noting that our beloved Mother Ship, the Association of American Law Schools, is focusing its annual meeting on scholarship for the fourth consecutive year.  In 2003 it was Scholarship; in 2004 it was Engaged Scholarship; in 2005 it was Empirical Scholarship; and this year it's going to be Expansion of Knowledge and Serving Our Communities.

New prez Judith Areen (Georgetown), writing in the new issue of aalsnews, also wants to juice up the meeting by having more sections do panels featuring new peer-reviewed scholarship, which she hopes will open the meetings to wider participation as well as make the panels more interesting.
