If you're going to be attending this week's AALS conference in San Francisco, please consider supporting a new provisional section on "Transactional Law and Skills." If you won't be in S.F., read to the end of this post to find out how you can still sign the petition.
From Professors Tina Stark and Joan Hemingway:
If you are attending the AALS Meeting, please come to the organizational meeting of the provisional AALS Section on Transactional Law and Skills and sign the petition in favor of creating the new Section. The meeting is being held on Wednesday, January 5th from 2:00 p.m. to 3: 45 p.m. at the Hilton Hotel, Yosemite A, Ballroom Level. We need signatures from at least 50 professors from at least 25 law schools. Please stop by. Signing will just take minute.
As the Section will not yet be formed, no official business will be conducted, but we will discuss the purpose of the Section and the process for gaining provisional and then permanent status.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, please consider emailing Professor Tina Stark at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm sure she'd be happy to send you an electronic copy of the petition (unfortunately, this blog platform doesn't let me attach it here) which you should sign and return to her via snail mail by January 15, 2011 at the following address:
Tina L. Stark
Professor in the Practice of Law
Executive Director of the Center for Transactional Law and Practice
Emory University School of Law
1301 Clifton Road
Atlanta, GA 30322
Please show your support for the legal skills movement by signing the petition.
