For The Record

In January, Wendy Collins Perdue, dean of Richmond Law, began a one-year term as president of the Association of American Law Schools. The AALS is a nonprofit association that works to uphold and advance excellence in legal education.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues to further strengthen legal education and the foundations of our system of justice,” Perdue said. “Our primary focus centers around providing the excellent education our students expect and our democratic society needs.”
