Bar policy shifts will assist law school faculties and sections July 1, 2006 Regular News At the urging of the Budget Committee, the Bar Board of Governors has amended two standing board policies, one to help sections and the other to help law school faculty who want to become affiliate Bar members.Outgoing Budget Committee Chair Mayanne Downs presented the changes at the board’s June meeting.One exempts sections from being charged for general administrative expenses by the Bar for sponsorship money they raise during the year.The second allows the Board of Governors to annually set the amount that will be charged for law faculty affiliate members, instead of setting that amount in standing board policies.That amount had been $25 and the board approved setting it at $35. Law professors who become affiliate Bar members are allowed to become section members if they pay the same dues as other section members.Bar Executive Director John F. Harkness, Jr., also said the change is a benefit for public law schools. Law schools will be able to pay for a group membership for all their law professors.“We think this will allow more faculty members to become affiliate members,” Harkness said.
