          Professor Leo P. Martinez, the Albert Abramson Professor of Law, has been elected to serve on the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar for a three-year term as a member-at-large.

          The Council provides leadership and services to those involved in legal education and admissions to the bar. The Section's Council is the national accrediting body for American legal education and helps improve the bar admission process.

          On the academic side of the Bar Association, Professor Martinez has served on the Membership Review Committee and the Executive Committee of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS). He has chaired or served on more than two-dozen ABA law school site evaluation visits and he has assisted ten law schools in their strategic planning. These opportunities gave him broad ranging experience with the operation of about 90% of American law schools. “Service on the Council allows me to complete the circle with the perspective of the accreditation process,” he said. “This is both an opportunity and an honor.”
