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.
The IAALS Law Firm Council (LFC) is a national group of firms whose members are invited to participate in IAALS’ programming, to engage in our process, and to have a voice at the table of meaningful and impactful reform within the system.
The LFC provides critical support—intellectually and financially—and functions as our “boots on the ground” by helping IAALS identify emerging issues and by providing feedback on our work as it develops. Throughout the year, LFC members connect regularly and have opportunities for leveraging their own involvement and impact. Details about membership available here.
If you are interested in learning more about the LFC, please contact Amy Downing, Events and Partnership Manager, at 303-871-6649.
