For The Record

The Association of American Law Schools elected Wendy Perdue, dean, its president-elect in January. She will serve in that role for a year and then serve a year as the organization’s president.

Perdue is a former vice president of the Order of the Coif and has served on the Duke Law School board of visitors, the editorial board of the Journal of Legal Education, and the board of governors of the Virginia Bar Association.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues at the AALS as together we work to further strengthen legal education and the foundations of our system of justice,” Perdue said.

The AALS is an association made up of most of the nation’s law schools. It serves as a leading voice for legal education.
