From the Section Director: Section Spotlight-Committee Opportunities

Erin Ruehrwein
Section Director

Did you know that the Section offers valuable leadership opportunities to serve on committees that focus on program development, publishing, and resources for adjunct faculty? In addition, it has committees that take the lead in planning its Law School Development and Associate Deans Conferences.  Each year, the Section appoints new members to these committees. Serving on Section committees presents a valuable opportunity to have an impact on important legal education resources, activities, and products, as well as an opportunity to network with your colleagues. Below I describe the missions of our Section committees.

If you are interested in serving on a Section committee, please contact me at: [email protected] by August 15, 2021.
