The AALS Section on Law, Medicine & Health Care has issued a call for nominations for section officers. The Section would like to encourage anyone who is a faculty member at an AALS member school to apply. The Section is seeking to fill these two officer positions for the year beginning in January 2016:
(1) The Secretary, who is expected to become Chair-Elect, and then Chair, and serve over the next three years, and
(2) One of two Section At Large Board Member, for a two-year term.
The Section has simplified the application process. If you are interested in serving in either position, please complete the brief form linked here. If you would like to nominate others to serve in either of these positions, please encourage them to apply. Please fill out the very brief application form by November 20, 2015.
The Section is sponsoring two programs this year. At the main section program, on "Whither Medicaid?", speakers will be Mary Beth Musumeci (Kaiser Family Foundation), Laura Hermer (Hamline), John Jacobi (Seton Hall), and Sidney Watson (St. Louis). The section is also sponsoring a junior scholars workshop with Wendy Epstein (DePaul), Elizabeth McCuskey (Toledo), and Jessica Mantel (Houston). Anyone interested in participating in workshopping these junior scholars' papers, please contact Leslie Francis, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you all at the AALS annual meeting in January in New York City.
