New AALS Section on Leadership

I have just received news from David Gibbs about a new AALS section on leadership.  David writes, "In November, the Executive Council of the AALS authorized the creation of a Leadership section of the AALS.  I was privileged to help Professor Deborah Rhode of Stanford, Leah Teague, Associate Dean of Baylor and Professor John Blaze who was the Dean of Tennessee establish the new AALS Section on Leadership.  Deborah is the president; Leah the president-elect; John and I will serve on the executive council; and Professor Terri Pollman of the William S. Boyd School of Law-UNLV and I will be co-editors of the newsletter."

"Leadership development is $46 billion-dollar industry that is widely use in business, non-profit and other organizations and is taught in business and other schools. Law schools are just beginning to realize that leadership development can help students and lawyers find their own voices, be effective and learn skills that are valued by employers and needed in legal practice and in other fields where lawyers play significant roles."

The section will have activities at AALS:

At the 2018 AALS Annual Meeting there will an Arc of Career Program on Leadership Development on Saturday January 6 from 8:30-12:00 Pacific Ballroom Salon 21, North Tower/Ground Level, Marriott moderated by David Delaney, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and Nancy H. Rogers, Ohio State University, Michael E. Moritz School of Law. 

The new leadership section plans to hold an informal meeting between 2-3 on Saturday January 6, which will be gather at the reception desk at the Marriott Marquis to discuss plans for programs, a newsletter, list serve, webpages and other activities. 

All are welcome to participate in the section or just learn more.  For more information, contact Deborah Rhode at rhode@stanford.edu or Leah Teague or David Gibbs at our interim email address leadership.aals@gmail.com

Good luck to this new section.
