    The CLEA Elections Committee (Binny Miller, Alex Scherr, Kele Stewart, Evelyn Cruz, Laura McNally, Sameer Ashar, and Maritza Karmely) is soliciting nominations through October 1, 2013 of individuals to serve on the CLEA Board starting in January 2014.

    This year, there are a total of 5 open Board positions, with 1 current Board member likely to seek election to a second term.  All positions require a three-year commitment.  I am attaching a memo prepared by the CLEA Elections Committee, which sets forth the activities and responsibilities of CLEA Board members in more detail. 

    Current CLEA members are invited to nominate themselves or other CLEA members as candidates for one of these open positions.  The committee also encourages "new clinicians" (defined as clinicians with fewer than 6 years of experience) to run for the CLEA Board.  Our Bylaws create a separate election process for candidates identified as "new clinicians," to ensure that the identified "new clinician" candidate who receives the greatest number of votes will be assured a place on the Board.

    The Committee strongly encourages CLEA members to nominate individuals from groups that are currently underrepresented within the leadership of various clinical institutions, including CLEA, the AALS Section on Clinical Legal Education, and the Clinical Law Review.

    The nomination process is simple.  Nominate yourself or someone else by contacting the chair of the CLEA Elections Committee, Binny Miller at If you are nominating yourself, please include a paragraph or two about why you are running and a link to your faculty profile, which will be included with the election materials to be sent later in the fall.  If you are nominating another CLEA member, there is no need to include such a paragraph; the name alone will suffice and the Election Committee will contact the nominee for further information.  If you have less than six years of clinical teaching experience and wish to be identified as a "new clinician" candidate, or if you want to nominate a candidate for the "new clinician" category, please indicate that as well.

    Although the process of nomination is easy, our Bylaws set a strict deadline for receiving nominations.  All nominations must be received by October 1, 2013.

    If you have questions about the CLEA Elections process, please feel free to contact me or Binny Miller at

    CLEA turns 21 this year!  In recognition of this milestone, CLEA will host a birthday party on Sunday, April 28, in a historic building courtyard in Old San Juan, from 8:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.  The party will feature our membership meeting, the results of the CLEA Creative Writing Contest, and dancing and rum drinking until the wee hours (okay, until 11--CLEA may be 21, but most of us aren't!)  The party will be a short distance from the hotel; information about transportation is coming soon.  Make sure to check the clinic listserv and the CLEA website for more details.  We hope to see you there!
