Foundations Advisory Committee

Our Foundations Advisory Committee represents a diverse set of perspectives to help us guide the Foundations for Practice project forward. Committee members provide critical input on various aspects of the project, including outreach strategies, product development, pilot projects with law schools and employers, and, ultimately, the prospect of developing a more interactive online set of tools for stakeholders to capture the full “system” we envision for Foundations. Our Committee also works with us to unlock the potential for Foundations to directly address systemic inequity and act as an entryway for more diversity in the profession.

Lawyers Council

The IAALS Lawyers Council (LC) is a national group of law firms and businesses whose members are invited to participate in IAALS’ work, to engage in our process, and to have a voice at the table of meaningful and impactful reform within the system. LC members provide critical support by collaborating with IAALS to identify emerging issues and by providing feedback on our work as it develops.

The LC supports IAALS both intellectually and financially. Members connect throughout the year and have opportunities for leveraging their own involvement and impact.
