Associate Deans Conference

The Section is once again presenting a conference for associate deans, July 11-13, at the InterContinental Chicago Hotel. “A Day in the Life of an Associate Dean: Leadership, Management, Finances, Administration and Beyond,” will address the many hats associate deans wear and the many audiences they interact with. In a single day, an associate dean might advise the dean, evaluate a colleague's funding request, work to inspire a junior scholar, review budget projections, draft a new law school policy, and hear a student complaint--all before lunch. Notwithstanding the breadth of responsibilities and constituencies, the associate dean position comes with little or no training. This conference aims to narrow the gap and provide associate deans with an opportunity to learn from fellow associate deans and other experts about their many responsibilities and audiences. 

Whether you are a seasoned or new associate dean, plan to join your fellow associate deans in Chicago, July 11-13. Register today.


Annual Meeting Student Debt Program

 Join us during the ABA Annual Meeting this August in New York for a complimentary program: A Strategic Approach to Student Loan Repayment. Held Thursday, August 10 at 2:00 p.m at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City, this program is co-sponsored with the ABA’s Law Student Division and is one you will not want to miss! Please watch for more information regarding the program at www.americanbar.org/legaled.
