Association of American Law Schools Annual Meeting

The following faculty and senior staff members made presentations at the Association of American Law Schools ("AALS") annual meeting in New Orleans: 
Professor David Gerber -- "Comparative Law:  An Historical Turn" 

Professor Steve Harris -- "Almost Everything You Need to Know About Revised Article 9" 

Professor Marty Malin -- "Workshop on Work, Workers and Law in the 21st Century:  The           Electronic Workplace" 
Professor Peggie Smith -- "Workshop on Work, Workers and Law in the 21st Century:  Domestic Workers" 
Assistant Dean Stephanie Rever Chu -- "Beyond the Classroom:  The Integral Role of the Student Service Professional in Teaching Professionalism:  Building Professionalism Components--A 'How To' Approach" 

I am also pleased to congratulate Claire Hill, who pinch-hit at the AALS meeting for someone whose plane was cancelled.  She spoke on the law and economics panel on the law and economics of lawyering.  Her presentation was called "Why Contracts are Written in Legalese." 

Dean Henry H. Perritt, Jr.
