Congratulations, Tom McDonnell!

Mcdonnell_thomasThomas McDonnell, Chair of the Criminal Law/Legal Writing Program at Pace Law School, was elected as a Co-Chair of the American Society of International Law (ASIL)Teaching International Law Interest Group (TILIG).  He replaces . . . me!   I served as a co-chair of TILIG for the past three years, and I am extremely pleased to see that Tom was elected as one of the new co-chairs.  He will certainly bring the interest group and its activities to a new level.  If you're a member of the ASIL, you can join TILIG for no additional charge -- just sign up on the website at  The American Society of International Law has members from around the world, and a brilliant annual meeting held each Spring in Washington D.C.  Interest groups carry on activities throughout the year, including a post-AALS TILIG meeting each year for law professors who teach international law or who are interested in doing so.

Tom, congratulations on becoming one of the co-chairs of this Interest Group!  Have a wonderful term!  He's joined in the new position by fellow Co-Chairs Professor Cindy Galway Buys of Southern Illinois University and Professor Rhee Sang-Myon of Korea.

Many legal writing professors have assumed important leadership roles in organizations not directly related to legal writing.
