Annual Meetings

   Annual Meeting, 1971. Attendance at the 1971 Annual
Meeting in Chicago was around 1.350 registered partici-
pants.   It marked the first time that member schools
were represented by official delegates, who will be
called representatives at the 1972 meeting as the re-
sult of the adoption of the following proposal of the
Committee on Purpose and Structure:

     Section 3-2. House of Representatives. The authority to conduct
   Association business at the annual meeting or special meetings is vested in a
   House of Representatives composed of one represenative from each member
   school. The faculty of each member school shall select the individual who is
   to represent the school in the House of Representatives and an alternate
   Representative to serve in the absence of the regular representative. Faculty
   members of the member schools may attend the meetings of the House of
   Representatives and have the privileges of the floor, but voting will be
   restricted to the elected representatives.


   (Technical conforming amendments were also adopted
for Sections 3-4, 4-1 and 4-2.)

   The 1971 Annual Meeting also marked the first annual
meeting of the incorporated Association of American Law
Schools, Inc., and the use of the expression Bylaws
of the Association, instead of Articles of Association.
The bylaws will appear in full in Part Two of the Pro-
ceedings of the 1971 Annual Meeting.

Academic Freedom and Tenure


     During the second business session of the Annual
  Meeting on December 29, 1971, the Association adopted
  the following resolution:

         The Association of American Law Schools strongly
     reprimands the University of Florida for its viola-
     tion of academic freedom in the manner of its dis-
     missal of Professor Lamborn. The Association recog-
     nizes the complexity of formulating the institutional
     measures best suited to overcoming the consequences
     of past violation of academic freedom. It recognizes
     also the desirability of enabling both Professor Lamborn
     and others to plan for the future. The Association there-
     fore requests the Executive Committee to determine finally
     at its February, 1972, meeting the adequacy of the offers
     of reinstatement and compensation which, the Committee
     may reasonably anticipate, will by then have been made.

     At the Executive Committee Meeting of February 3 and
  4, 1972, the Committee had before it an exchange of letters
  between Dean Joseph R. Julin of the University of Florida
  College of Law and Professor Leroy L. Lamborn, setting
  forth the University's offer of reinstatement and compen-
  sation, and Professor Lamborn's statement that he regard-
  ed the offer and the assurances as an acceptable recog-
  nition of his position and the Association's support, and,
  as a consequence, he was disinclined to pursue the matter
  further.   Accordingly, the Executive Committee considered
  the matter settled and that it had no further obligation
  of determining the adequacy of the offers of reinstatement
  and compensation pursuant to the resolution of December
  29, 1971.

      The Executive Committee recognized that Professor
   Lamborn's efforts to vindicate his position effectively
   demonstrated the need for the promulgation of improved
   Association procedures for academic freedom and tenure
   cases. Such procedures are in process of being drafted
   in consultations between the members of the Committee on
   Academic Freedom and Tenure and the Executive Committee.
