June 17, 2016 — Dean Shelley Saxer is speaking at the morning plenary session today on Managing People, Managing Resources, Managing Teams at the 2016 ABA Associate Deans Conference titled “Adapting To A Changing Landscape.” The conference is being held at St. Thomas Law School. Dean Saxer also will be leading a breakout session on Managing Faculty Resources With Fairness & Recognition of Contributions.
From 2016 ABA Associate Deans Conference program:
There is little about legal education that is not in transition right now. Associate Deans are all adjusting to similar challenges and opportunities across the nation. How do law schools respond to the new accreditation requirements and innovate in curricular design with decreasing resources? How do law schools educate a changing student population that is also facing increasing student debt loads and a legal job market that looks very different from when you graduated? How are you managing the shifting demands on your academic programs, student services, and faculty research? Don’t go at it alone. Join your fellow associate deans in Minneapolis, June 16-19, for a rich discussion on ‘Adapting to a Changing Landscape’.
