●Two new pages have been added to the Section’s website.
Student Loan Repayment and Forgiveness Resources is a compilation of links to federal agencies and nonprofit organizations that offer student loan advice and repayment assistance. The page can be accessed from the Resources page under Law Students.
Accreditation Archives is a collection of accreditation-related reports and decisions. In conjunction with this page, the Section staff is working on a chronological history of the ABA Standards and Rules for Approval of Law Schools. This project is expected to be completed in April 2012. You can find the link to the archives page in the Law School Accreditation box on the Section’s home page.

●The ABA’s Meetings and Travel Division is set to roll out the E-Program, a new web-based feature that allows you to access and search the Midyear and Annual Meeting programs from your mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android or Blackberry) or computer and download events to your personal calendar. Changes to your selected events will automatically update. The My Events function will allow you to email your calendar to yourself and to print it out. The E-Program will be available in time for the Midyear Meeting in February. Watch the ABA’s and the Section’s home pages for the announcement.
