ALSB Sections

Within the Academy are nine specific interests sections. These sections sponsor symposia, panels, workshops, and papers at the annual ALSB Conference each August. They also provide teaching and research support in their specialized areas. Membership in the sections is only available to ALSB members and is $10 per year in addition to the annual membership dues. Membership in more than one section is also encouraged. You may join a section listserv by logging into the members’-only page=>here. The nine sections and the contact persons are:

Black Faculty Section

2023-24 Officers:
Chair:  Aquesha Daniels, Western Kentucky University
Vice Chair:  Anthony McMullen, University of Central Arkansas
Secretary: Destynie Sewell, University of Nebraska, Omaha

The mission of this Section is to promote, sponsor, and engage in conversations in the Academy of Legal Studies in Business regarding the needs of faculty of color and the role that our home institutions and the ALSB can have in promoting those needs. 

The Section will advise and collaborate with the ALSB’s efforts to advance the interests and inclusion of faculty of color as scholars and teachers of law and ethics in business schools. These conversations are inextricably linked to the equity, inclusion, access, and belonging of all ALSB faculty—Black, Hispanic/Latinx, International, LGBTQ+, Indigenous, Asian, White, and other groups. To advance these objectives, the Section will sponsor and conduct panels, symposia, workshops, presentations, and networking events with a focus on historically underrepresented groups in the ALSB while recognizing intersectionality and acknowledging that achieving equity, inclusion, access, and belonging for some ALSB members advances the same for all ALSB members. Accordingly, the Section welcomes all ALSB members to be “in the room.”
