Professor Genetin elected chair of the AALS section on litigation


Professor Bernadette Genetin was elected as the Chair of the Section on Litigation at the recent Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS).  At that meeting, the Litigation Section presented a program entitled Preparing the 21st Century Litigator, focusing on effective means of training litigators.  Professor Genetin plans to follow that program with one exploring the future contours of the  discovery process.  This essential subject is taking on increased importance, as the debate on proposals to limit discovery available under the Federal Rules heats up.
