“Law schools play special roles in protecting our constitutional system, through the scholarship their faculty produce and through how they educate their students to become lawyers, judges, and other participants in our legal system.”
AALS helped get teaching careers off to a great start and welcomed more than 70 new law school faculty to a workshop held in Washington, DC. Attendees heard from a roster of inspirational scholars and teachers who gave advice on how to balance the many demands of an academic career.
The AALS Clinical Conference hosted more than 750 legal educators in San Francisco. Under the theme of “Teaching the Next Generation of Lawyer Leaders in a Time of Polarization,” the conference featured more than 350 speakers and over 100 sessions organized in a variety of formats.
