2014 AALS Workshop for Pretenured People of Color Law School Teachers
June 21 - 22, 2014
AALS would like to thank and recognize the Law School Admission Council for their generous grant to support this workshop.
Minority law teachers face special challenges in the legal academy, starting from their first day of teaching. At this workshop, diverse panels of experienced and successful law professors will focus on these challenges as they arise in the context of scholarship, teaching, service, and the tenure process. The workshop dovetails with the AALS Workshop for New Law School Teachers by providing sustained emphasis on the distinctive situations faced by pretenured people of color law school teachers.
Who Should Attend?
The workshop will be of interest to newly appointed people of color law school teachers as well as junior professors who are navigating the tenure process and looking for guidance and support.
The Workshop for Pretenured People of Color Law School Teachers will begin on Saturday, June 21, with a Luncheon at 12:45 p.m. followed by an afternoon of plenary sessions. The workshop continues on Sunday, June 22 with attendees working in small groups to develop their teaching and scholarship. The workshop concludes at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 22.
