                     PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

                     A Generation of Change
                     By Emma Coleman Jordan

   Each year the Association selects one of us, a faculty member or dean,
to lead the organization as President. I step into the presidency with a special
sense of pride because this Association is leading the way for the entire legal
profession to embrace the full richness and variety of talent now flowing
from our law schools.

   I am deeply honored to be asked to join the list of distinguished
colleagues who have preceded me in this role. It will be a special privilege
to follow Robert Gorman as President, because Bob has been an inspiration
to all who have watched him. His commitment and vision have served as
quiet reminders that the hallmark of a truly outstanding peer is leadership
by example. My work in the coming year will be made easier by Betsy Levin's
wise and energetic counsel as Executive Director.


Professor Emma Coleman Jordan, AALS President,
     addresses the House of Representatives
        at the 1992 Annual Meeting.
    Her address is printed here in its entirety.


   I have chosen to give my remarks today the title A Generation of Change.

   The Association of American Law Schools has consistently been ahead of the rest of society in reaching out to
embrace members of once disfavored groups. In 1951, three years before Brown v. Board of Education was decided,
this Association adopted the predecessor of what is now Bylaw 6-4 announcing its policy of non-discrimination. In
1957, prior to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Association made non-discrimination on grounds of
race or color a membership requirement, and a committee on Racial Discrimination in Law Schools was formed to
inquire directly of each school whether Negro students had been admitted. This Committee continued to send a
written questionnaire to law schools until 1966. In 1970, gender discrimination was added to the equality of
                                                                                            Continued on page 2
