CUNY School of Law on Jan. 3 received membership in the Association of American Law Schools at the organization’s annual meeting in New York City.
CUNY Law joins roughly 160 other law schools that have attained membership standing with AALS. “CUNY Law’s membership in the AALS, which is the society of learned legal scholars, is strong validation of our commitment to research and writing that advances social justice for communities in need,” Dean Michelle J. Anderson said.
To attain AALS membership standing, a school is subjected to rigorous review of all aspects of its program, including admissions, academics, finances and other matters, according to AALS executives.
It is the principal representative of legal education to the federal government, other national higher education organizations, learned societies and international law schools.
