AALS Section Meetings
Posted by Gordon Smith

It was an eventful first day at AALS, including some unscripted excitement at the Securities Regulation panel. When I scooted my chair back from the participant's table, one of the legs went off the end of the dais ... and I soon followed. I have never felt as helpless as I did while falling backwards off the stage! (Don't mind me, everyone!) Fortunately, I wasn't hurt, but it was plenty embarrassing.

My sudden cold (and loss of voice) kept me out of the afternoon sessions, but I heard good things about the first practical skills session (Pedagogy for New Law School Teachers: Teaching Transactional Skills Using Interactive Methods in Doctrinal Classes: Flipped Class Rooms, Lab Courses, Drafting and More). I am still looking forward to several section meetings:

  • Contracts: Braided Contracting and the Interplay of Formal and Informal Enforcement Strategies in Contract Relationships
  • Business Associations and Law and Economics, The Corporate Law and Economics Revolution 40 Years Later: The Impact of Economics and Finance Scholarship on Modern Corporate Law
  • Transactional Law and Skills, Transactional Lawyering and Contractual Innovation
  • Creditors’ and Debtors’ Rights Section, Bankruptcy for the Ninety-Five Percent: Making the System Work for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses and Sole Proprietors

Here's hoping to a quick recovery for tomorrow!
