Vanderbilt, American Judicature Society Join Efforts

The American Judicature Society (AJS) and Vanderbilt Law School announced an affiliation agreement today that, according to the groups, will result in joint educational programming, publications and new research. In addition, AJS will relocate from Des Moines, Iowa, to the Vanderbilt campus in Nashville. Vanderbilt Law Dean Chris Guthrie said the partnership provides the opportunity to “strengthen ties to the bench and bar, conduct academic programming in areas of mutual interest, create new educational and professional opportunities for students, facilitate faculty research, and enhance the reach and reputation of the law school’s dispute resolution and criminal justice program." With the move to Tennessee, AJS executive director Seth Anderson has decided to remain in Iowa so the group is searching for a new director. Learn more about the job opening on the AJS website.
