Arnold Rosenberg, Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Assistant Dean for Distance Education Programs, has been elected to the board of directors of the San Diego Bankruptcy Forum, the leading local organization of the bankruptcy bar. Also, at the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) annual meeting on January 7, 2012 he will be installed as the 2012 Chair of the AALS Section on Post-graduate Legal Education.
“This is a vote of confidence for me and the law school,” said Dean Rosenberg of his election to the Bankruptcy Forum board. “It helps to improve the visibility of TJSL within the bankruptcy bar. We have so many graduates practicing in that area given the condition of the economy.”
As for his AALS appointment, Dean Rosenberg says, “One of the prerogatives of the chairman is to select the program at the 2013 AALS meeting. We’ll do a panel discussion that will focus on online LL.M. programs.”
Dean Rosenberg is the director of TJSL’s online LL.M. program in International Tax and Financial Services. He sees online legal education as important part of the future, “as a way to make a legal education accessible to a segment of the population that otherwise may not be able to afford it.”
Congratulations Dean Rosenberg!
