Curriculum Innovations
Committee on the Curriculum. Its purpose is to provide legal educators with a way to gain information and share ideas about innovations in the basic design of the educational program we provide for our students.

Databanks for Women and Minority Deans
The concept of the Women Deans' Databank was not only insightful, it was also convenient for both candidates seeking positions as deans and dean search committees looking for individuals to lead their academic programs. The potential of the Women Deans' Databank, evidenced by the appointment of five new women deans during the 1998-1999 academic year and an additional seven women deans during the 1999-2000 academic year, prompted the AALS to institute a Minority Deans' Databank, to raise the percentage of minority dean representation.
