Hear about exciting updates to the NNLSO Organization. Reconnect with colleagues in the field. Welcome new colleagues.

Law School Assessment Practices
1:15-2:15 p.m.
The American Bar Association Standard 314 mandates that both formative and summative assessments must be utilized by law schools, and provides definitions for the two different types of assessments; however permits some flexibility to allow variation of assessment programs from school to school. How are law schools developing their assessment practices to meet this standard?

Graduate and Professional Issues Committee Panel Discussion
4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
This panel will present and discuss issues that affect both graduate and professional schools. We will cover topics such as planning an appropriate orientation for adult learners and non-traditional students, dual degrees between graduate and professional schools and co-curricular transcripts. We will also open up the discussion to attendees that may have a topic of concern that this particular audience would be most suited to address. (this session is not a NNLSO session, but may be of interest to the NNLSO membership)
