Associate Deans Conference

If you want to get something done in a law school, assign it to an associate dean! Associate deans are called upon to run the day-to-day functions of a school. As such, they must draw upon a number of different skills, most of which were not those for which they were hired as faculty members. During this conference, new and experienced associate deans will learn from seasoned leaders about how to improve their skill sets. Whether you are in academic affairs, faculty research and development, or student affairs, this conference will help you to become better in your role. Recognizing that none of us work in a vacuum, there will also be opportunities to examine ways that different associate deans at a school can work together.

Recent Webinars

The Section presented two complimentary webinars in May. 

Teaching Strategies and Assessments to Disrupt Implicit and Explicit Bias
This webinar features Mercer University School of Law Professor Teri McMurtry-Chubb as she summarizes her empirical research project on the relationship between racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia and how law students formulate arguments in brief writing. The webinar provides concrete strategies for course planning and assessment that integrate cultural competency learning outcomes and performance criteria and introduced attendees to critical pedagogies (teaching strategies) designed to disrupt students’ implicit and explicit biases.

Adjunct Faculty—Supporting Essential Partners in the Law School Curriculum
This webinar focuses on strategies for identifying, recruiting, training, supporting, and evaluating those energetic souls who have other high-level legal employment, and somehow make the time to teach a law school class in addition to doing their “day job.” Panelists include:

Eileen A. Scallen, Professor of Practice, UCLA School of Law

Kim D. Chanbonpin, Professor and Director of Lawyering Skills, The John Marshall Law School
Michael Hunter Schwartz, Dean and Professor, University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law
William J. Snape, III, Assistant Dean of Adjunct Faculty Affairs, American University Washington College of Law

The recordings and materials for both webinars are posted on the Section’s website.
