The Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research announced the names of the section's poster presenters at AALS Annual Meeting in San Diego this January. The AALS started doing posters a couple of years ago -- they highlight academic work in a poster format rather than in a presentation.
It is an honor to have a poster selected by the Section for presentation. These posters will be seen by hundreds (maybe thousands) of law professors attending the conference.
- Lisa McElroy & Robin Welford Slocum will have a poster called “Building Capable Lawyers: Five Effective Strategies to Help Students Scale the Ladder of Learning.”
- Gail Stephenson will have a poster on “Why Should Law Schools Take Concrete Steps Toward Diversity?”
The posters will be on display at the San Diego Marriott Hotel during the AALS conference. Congratulations to those whose posters were selected, and congratulations to the members of poster committee: Samantha Moppett (Chair), Lisa Penland, Jeanne Kaiser, Ann Santos, Aida Alaka, Joan Malmud, Gabe Teninbaum, Karen Sneddon, and Sabrina DeFabritiis.
Hat tip to Samantha Moppett, chair of the poster committee
