News from the AALS Clinical Section

Dear Friends in Clinical Legal Education:

I just sent this e-mail out over the AALS communication platform, so I’m sorry if you have received this message twice. I want to make sure that our Section members who are not yet on the platform also get the message.

I am delighted to let you all know that you may now access the Spring 2010 Clinical Section Newsletter, which is on the AALS Communications Platform. Liz Hubertz, our Newsletter Editor, is also mailing out paper copies to those of you who have been receiving the Newsletter in that medium (though this will be our last paper copy – check the Newsletter for details).

As a reminder, to log in:
o Click on and follow the login instructions (your username is your e-mail address; if you don’t remember your AALS password, follow the instructions for password help – the AALS will send you a new temporary password by e-mail).
o Once logged in, click on “Communities” in the top tool bar. Then click on “Section” in the middle of the page, and then click on “Clinical Legal Education.”
o The Newsletter, along with Task Force Report and several other important documents, is located under “File Library” towards the bottom of the page. When you click on the document, you will see instructions to download or e-mail yourself the Newsletter.
o If you have a problem getting onto the platform, please contact Pati Abdulina at

I understand that we are in a transition period with the communications platform, so if you just want me to e-mail you the Newsletter (or the Task Force Report), please contact me at

We are about a week away from the clinical conference in Baltimore, and I am looking forward to seeing many of you there. If you haven’t yet made plans to come, it’s not too late. The program looks spectacular (for details about the program, go to; the conference brochure is a link on the left side of the page under “In the Spotlight”).

The conference is a great opportunity to meet and/or reconnect with our clinical colleagues from around the country. In addition to what’s on the program, among other things, you will learn about:
o What is going on with the ABA Standards Review process, how to stay informed, and what each of us could/should be doing at our law schools
o How to become members or renew membership in the Section through the AALS’ communications platform
o How to participate in our Section’s new mentoring program

Best regards, Amy Applegate, Chair, AALS Section on Clinical Legal Education
