ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN LAW SCHOOLS • ONE DUPONT CIRCLE . WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036 * NO. 89-1 FEBRUARY 1989


AN AGENDA FOR A SHARED FUTURE


     (Presented by Professor Herma Hill
Kay, AALS President, to the House of
Representatives of the Association of
American Law Schools, January 7, 1989,
New Orleans, Louisiana.)

     I am deeply honored by the
opportunity you have given me to lead the
Association of American Law Schools
during the coming year. As we begin our
work together, I want to offer you an
agenda for our shared future of improving
legal education.


                                                                 First, It is appropriate to acknow-
                                                            ledge that we do not begin entirely
Herma Hill Kay, AALS President.                             anew. The work of the Association is
                                                            ongoing, and each new President has the
responsibility of carrying forward the Initiatives begun by others. Several projects remain on our agenda,
and will occupy much of our attention In 1989 and during the Annual Meeting In San Francisco In 1990.

    Prominent among these continuing projects are the proposals of several Special Committees appointed by
earlier Presidents. These Include the Special Committee on the Recruitment and Retention of Minority Law
Teachers, appointed by President Victor Rosenblum and chaired by Professor Robert Belton of Vanderbilt; the
Special Committee to Review the Requirements of Membership of the Association of American Law Schools,
appointed by President Susan Westerberg Prager and chaired by Professor David McCarthy of Georgetown; the
Special Committee on Long-Range Planning, appointed by President Richard Huber and chaired by Professor
Thomas Morgan of Emory; the Special Committee on Ethical and Professional Responsibilities of Law
Professors, appointed by President Richard Huber and chaired by Professor Clark Byse of Harvard; and the
Special Committee on the Impact of Elimination of Mandatory Retirement Requirements, appointed by
President Richard Huber and chaired by Professor John Strong of Arizona.

                                                                 (Continued on Page 2)
