Daniel Rodriguez, who is the dean of the Northwestern School of Law, has been named to a one-year term as the president of the Association of American Law Schools, according to a release from the school earlier this month.

The Association of American Law Schools consists of 176 law schools across the country. The organization is a nonprofit society of education for law teachers and is the primary representative of law schools in the country to the federal government and other types of academic groups. From 2009 to 2011, Rodriguez served as a member of the executive committee.


“Legal education is at a crossroads, and those of us principally involved in legal education must think creatively and strategically about how best to assure that we are serving the objectives of our profession and managing rapid change,” Rodriguez said in a news release. “I look forward to working with my AALS colleagues and all legal educators on many interesting initiatives and on improving the nation’s law schools.”

Rodriguez is taking over the position from Leo Martinez, a law professor from the University of California Hastings. Rodriguez will be inaugurated to his post at the annual meetings for the association, which take place from January 2-5, 2013 in New York City.
