The AALS Section on Transactional Law and Skills at the AALS Annual Meeting

Eric Gouvin, Dean of Western New England University School of Law, sent me the following announcement regarding the AALS annual meeting:

The AALS Section on Transactional Law and Skills will be hosting two events at the AALS Annual Meeting in New York: (1) a program; and (2) a reception.  Here are the details:

First, the program features Prof. Ronald Gilson as the main presenter and is  entitled “Value Creation By Business Lawyers in the 21st Century.”  It is scheduled for Saturday January 4th from 4-5:45pm.  It’s going to be a great program.  Here is the program description:

In 1984, the Yale Law Journal published one of the foundational scholarly articles in the study of transactional law, Professor Ronald Gilson’s “Value Creation by Business Lawyers.”  In the years since its publication the article has fueled a robust debate on the role of business lawyers and the justification for the services they provide.  On the thirtieth anniversary of that influential article this program will re-examine Professor Gilson’s thesis, evaluate the impact of the article, and discuss the prospects for business lawyers creating value in the 21st Century. 

The program will have two parts-

(i)            Part one will feature Professor Gilson, along with our two speakers (Professor Jeff Lipshaw and Professor Elizabeth Pollman). Professor Gilson will be speaking for approximately 20 minutes, followed by Professors Lipshaw and Pollman. 

(ii)           Part two will feature presentation of the two papers selected from the call for papers.  We have two terrific papers selected for presentation: (1) Professor Susan R. Jones (The George Washington University Law School) & Professor Jacqueline Lainez (The University of Richmond School of Law) will present Viewing Value Creation by Business Lawyers Through The Lens of Transactional Legal Clinics, and (2) Professor Karl Okamoto will present Value Creation in StartUp Lawyering. 

The panel will then be followed by 15 minutes of discussion and questions/comments from the audience. We will conclude the program with a short 5 minute business meeting.

Second, the Practical Law Company, which is now a division of Thomson Reuters, is sponsoring a reception in honor of the Section.  Here are the details:

Event:                   Thomson Reuters Reception for the AALS Section on Transactional Law and Skills

Date/Time:         Friday, January 3, 2014, 6:30-8:30 pm

Location:              Conference Room F, Executive Conference Center, Sheraton New York, 811 7th Avenue 53rd Street, New York, NY  10019

These two events promise to provide a great forum for discussing business law and legal education.
