Pitt Law faculty and staff took part in the Association of American Law Schools Annual Meeting in San Francisco last week. Two faculty members assumed leadership positions: Professor Pat Chew was elected to the organization's Executive Committee (marking the first time a Pitt Law faculty member has ever served in this prestigous position), and Professor Larry Frolik became the Chair of the Section on Law and Aging. Professor Peter Oh presented his work, "Veil Piercing Unbound," on a panel entitled "Rebirth of the Irreparable Injury Rule" organized by the Section on Remedies. Professor David Harris organized a Hot Topics panel, entitled "Arizona's S.B. 1070: A Combustible Mix of Constitutional Law, Criminal Justice, Racial Profiling, and Blatant Falsehoods," and presented his work concerning the effect of the Arizona immigration law on police effectiveness and racial profiling. Drew Chelosky, Director of Development, served as a panelist for "Law School Annual Funds and Excelling After the Recession," presented by the Section on Institutional Advancement. Also attending the Meeting were Dean Mary Crossley, Associate Dean Lu-in Wang, Law Library Director George Pike, Professors John Burkoff, Nancy Burkoff, and Doug Branson, and Director of Constituent Relations Allison Saras.
