St. Thomas Law Recognized by National Association

Please join us in congratulating our Law School faculty and staff as we have good news from the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools recently concluded in New York City. 

Jennifer Martin was named Vice President of CALI (The Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction, a consortium of 170 law schools).  In addition to creating online interactive learning exercises for law school courses (so far 950 lessons in 35 subjects,) CALI will be expanding its service to provide a bank of bar review questions, and producing several casebooks or coursebooks incorporating the CALI method.  Professor Martin has also been chosen to write the CALI book on contracts.

Tamara Lawson, with other members of the ABATask Force for which she serves as Reporter, presented an extended program on Stand Your Ground Laws.  She represented the LS well in a community of criminal law experts.  She also moderated a panel presentation on Law and Music for the AALS Law and Humanities Section. 

Ira Nathenson was named to the Executive Committee of the AALS Section on Civil Procedure, one of the largest of AALS Sections.

These activities continue to expand our Law School’s reputation and we thank our three leaders in the legal profession!
