I am honored to work collaboratively with the members of the Executive Committee and AALS staff in furtherance of this important work,” said Wilson in the announcement. “My theme for the year—Courage in Action—reflects my view that we will continue to accomplish ambitious goals in the legal academe, provided we pursue our aims tenaciously and bravely with an open mind.”
