Here [Download bulletin.pdf] is a PDF file of a special time-sensitive Fall 07 section newsletter produced by the AALS Section on Professional Responsibility. It contains special announcements about the AALS annual meeting in New York City early next month (including section activities and panels), plus other announcements of ethics meetings and competitions (like McGeorge's ethics trial competition March 13-15) and other activities throughout the U.S. in early 2007. At the AALS conference, Fordham is hosting a section dinner on Jan. 3 that requires an RSVP by Dec. 14. The bulletin has news of your chance to nominate for the ABA's Michael Franck Professional Responsibility Awards, where past honorees have included the late Father Robert Drinan and also Monroe Freedman, as well as news of a professional teaching award by the ABA. Thanks to editor Randy Lee and section president Russ Pearce -- and all involved in this bulletin -- for allowing LPB to post it for members and non-members alike interested in meeting and news on legal ethics. The editor anticipates a follow-up with more news, law summaries, and scholarly blurbs, but this abbreviated newsletter, too, is quite useful for its announcements.
