Khary Hornsby ('05) to Chair AALS Section on Graduate Programs

MARCH 2, 2011—Khary Hornsby ('05), Director of International and Graduate Programs at the University of Minnesota Law School, was voted chair-elect of the Section on Graduate Programs for Non-U.S. Lawyers at the 2011 annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) in San Francisco in January. He previously served as treasurer of the Section.

The AALS is a nonprofit association of 172 U.S. law schools dedicated to improving the legal profession through education. Its sections consist of members with a common interest—in subject matter and in other aspects of legal education. It is the responsibility of the section chair to determine the specific interests of members, promote communication and cooperation, and direct section activities and ensure their diversity and continuity. Typical section activities include compiling teaching materials, providing mentoring programs, and posting information on the AALS Web site. In addition, sections present programs at the AALS annual meeting.

Hornsby joined the Law School in 2009. Previously he was associate director of admission and recruitment in charge of financial aid, scholarships, and other programs at Emory University School of Law. As a Law School student, he was an editor of Law and Inequality: A Journal of Theory and Practice, president of the Black Law Student Association, and the 2005 Judge Michael J. Davis Scholar for outstanding academic achievement. He clerked for the Honorable Harry S. Crump of Minnesota’s Fourth District. He has a B.S. in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Michigan—Ann Arbor and has been a researcher in China and teaching assistant in France.
