10th Anniversary

In 2016, IAALS is ten years old. In dog years, seventy. In the world of start-ups, ten years marks a watershed; eighty percent of start-ups have already failed by now. To the contrary, today IAALS is thriving.

We are so proud of what we have accomplished, together with your help. Whether you have been on this journey with us since the beginning, or are just finding us for the first time, allow us to demonstrate what we have done with those years and why the world is a better place because we exist.

IAALS is a place of aspiration and innovation. We identify problem areas in our legal system where we believe we can make a difference. We do the research, convene the experts, design solutions, and implement them. And, the results have been nothing short of amazing.

In the last ten years, we have achieved real successes in implementing changes designed to improve the civil justice process.

Our civil courts also deal with family cases. In this area, we are cutting a wide swath, building a movement for broad and deep change.

The system is only as good as the judges who preside over it. So, we have engaged in the field of judicial selection, retention, and evaluation.

Lastly, we know that any change has to be supported by the next generation—through law schools—and we have created a platform for innovation.

We have a strong base here at IAALS. Upon that foundation, we intend to build the contours of a new system.
