Date: Tuesday, August 15th from 1:30 – 2:30 pm EST


Discussion Description:

The AALS LWRR Section invites you to a Back-to-School Section Social August 15 at 1:30 Eastern. This social will be an informal chance to connect with colleagues from around the country and get inspired for the year ahead.  Please come with either something you learned or want to try from this summer (maybe a takeaway from one of the excellent conferences?), or a question you have as you move into the fall semester.

We would love to see you there!
