February is just around the corner and that means the AAFS annual meeting is coming soon.  It is not too early to book your hotel room!  This year’s Jurisprudence Section program promises to be interesting and varied.  Thank you to all who took the time to submit an abstract.  Those of you who have been accepted to present during the section’s program will be notified shortly.  Please be sure to work with your program chair and co-chair if they should ask you for modifications to your submission.  I know Lauri Traub and Ted Vosk will appreciate your cooperation.  Additionally, thank you to all Jurisprudence Section members who willingly volunteered to moderate sessions at the upcoming meeting.  Your willingness to contribute is much appreciated.

Finally, it is with great pride and pleasure that I am able to share that our own Pamela King has been appointed to the bench in the Third Judicial District in the State of Minnesota.  I know you join me in wishing her well.
