ANNUAL MEETING 1972                                                EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE FOR 1973:


     The first session of the newly-formed House of
Representatives of the AALS met during the 1972 Annual
Meeting in New York City. Despite the novelty of its
mechanism, it successfully took the following actions:

     1. Adopted rules of proceeding as proposed by the
Special Committee named earlier in the year. The text
of the rules will appear in Part Two of the Proceedings
of the meeting.

     2. Adopted the amendments to Sections 5-3, 7-1
and 7-2 of the Association Bylaws that were proposed
by the Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure. The
amended bylaws will be printed in Part Two of the
Proceedings.

     3. Elected the nominees for president-elect and
membership on the Executive Committee proposed by the
Nominating Committee. The membership of the Executive
Committee for 1973 is shown in another section of this
Newsletter.

    4. Sustained the ruling of the chair that a reso-
lution on a political matter (Vietnam) could not be
added to the order of business for lack of a suffi-
cient number of affirmative votes to permit it as an
exception to the relevant rule, as provided in the new-
ly adopted rules of proceeding.

    5. Voted admission to membership of Hofstra Univer-
sity School of Law.

SECTIONS

The December 1 Newsletter contained a list of the Sections proposed by the
Executive Committee, based on existing Committees and Round Table Councils.
Organizing meetings for those Sections were scheduled at the 1972 Annual
Meeting in New York. This Newsletter includes a Section Chart showing the
scope and name adopted by each Section.

Section membership is open to all teachers on faculties of AALS member schools.
Membership policy is shown on the Section Chart. In some cases, those teaching
given subjects will automatically become members of the relevant Section unless
they prefer to remain out. Those desiring to participate in Sections whose
membership is not automatic should complete the forms included with this News-
letter. Forms may also be used to indicate interest in four new proposed
Sections -- Insurance, Law and Psychiatry, Legal Bibliography, and Future of
the AALS -- applications for which will be considered by the Executive Committee.
Teachers who signed up for Sections at the Annual Meeting need not complete forms.

The Executive Committee has agreed that no dues should be assessed by individual
Sections during 1973. Information concerning proposed Section activites,
including plans for the 1973 Annual Meeting, will be communicated to Section
members at convenient intervals. Suggestions for projects and programs should
be sent to Section Chairmen, rather than to the Office of the Executive Director,
