Our Story

The mission of AALS is to uphold and advance excellence in legal education.

Founded in 1900, the mission of AALS is to uphold and advance excellence in legal education. In support of this mission, AALS promotes the core values of excellence in teaching and scholarship, academic freedom, and diversity, including diversity of backgrounds and viewpoints, while seeking to improve the legal profession, to foster justice, and to serve its many communities–local, national and international.

AALS has the dual responsibility of serving law schools and their deans as their institutional membership organization, and individual law school faculty and administrators as their learned society. AALS provides extensive professional development opportunities including the AALS Annual Meeting, the centerpiece of yearly association activities which draws thousands of professors, deans, and administrators. Faculty and deans engage throughout the year via more than 100 sections that present programs, provide mentoring for new faculty, and serve as a resource for discussions on important legal issues from antitrust, dispute resolution, and taxation to civil rights, criminal justice, and international law. Each year, the association also hosts a clinical conference, a faculty recruitment conference, and a workshop for new law teachers.

Biden needs to address this... This is what Obama and Biden tried to cover up along with the FBI. If anyone ever had to check into the Hospital for hearing high pitched sounds or for hearing voices,now you know. Does everyone see how the FBI is a cancer on America ? In Lehigh County Government they think just like the FBI, if we all stick together nobody is going to do anything , there is too many of us . That's how they think at the FBI , that's how they think at the Pennsylvania State Police and that's how they think in Lehigh County , they could do what they want . My two trials prove that . The Criminal Defense Attorney's went right along w/ that mind set of the FBI , Pennsylvania State Police and Lehigh county Law Enforcement. When you have Judges telling me to report criminal conduct , to say the least , to the media ... and then putting me through two trials trying to cover up their use in Microwave Technology and Remote Neural Monitoring . The FBI controls the Defense Attorney's , the FBI controls the Judges , the FBI controls the media , in this case the FBI even controlled the Jury ... this is what a trial looks like in America ...

Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel through her Assistant Attorney General Daniel J. Ping just submitted a brief to the U.S. District Court Eastern District of Michigan Southern Division located in Detroit a motion to dismiss Jeremiah's Writ of Habeas Corpus for failure to Exhaust all State Claims. 1. Jeremiah attempted to fairly present all of his claims in support of his Innocence to the Michigan State Court of Appeals and to the Michigan State Supreme Court. These Courts accepted, rejected, and then denied his motions. 2. Jeremiah was assigned two court of Appeals Attorneys. Attorney Daniel Rust was assigned as Jeremiah's First Attorney for COA 324275 and he only appealed the extremely high sentence Jeremiah received 22-40 years. Court of Appeals Presiding Judge Amy Ronayne Krause said in her decision that Jeremiah infected Brittney with the STD Herpes. No Evidence was ever presented in any court by anyone that either Brittney or Jeremiah had Herpes. The Rash that Brittney had in 2005 was not Herpes per Dr. Leja of Cheboygan Michigan. The blood test that showed Brittney positive for Herpes showed her positive for a past out break not a current one in 2005. A medical record from where Brittney was born in 1998 showed Brittney was never tested for any STD's in 1998.This is all contained in a 10 page Michigan State Police report and hidden from the Jury. This Brady violation has never been addressed by the high courts of Michigan. Attorney Rust received a letter of reprimand by the Attorney Discipline Board in 2017 for a different case for Professional Misconduct while acting as court appointed appellate counsel in a criminal matter. 3. Jeremiah was recently Appointed Court of Appeals Attorney Alona Sharon by the Presque Isle County Trial Court. During Jeremiah's Prison Video Conference with Attorney Sharon she told Jeremiah she was only going to Appeal his extremely High Sentence. Jeremiah asked Alona what about the rest of his Issues contained in court of Appeals case 340063 she said that Attorney Rust should have appealed those. Alona said that she was told only to Appeal the extremely high sentence. She would not tell Jeremiah who told her this. We suspect that it was the Judges of Presque Isle County. 4. We filed this writ of Habeas Corpus with the Federal Government based upon Cause and Prejudice which resulted in a fundamental miscarriage of justice against an Innocent man. Coleman v Thompson, 501 U.S. 722, 111 S. Ct. 2546, 115 L. Ed. 2d 640 (1991). A fundamental miscarriage of justice has occurred when it is found that a constitutional violation has probably resulted in the conviction of someone actually innocent. Murry, 477 U.S. at 496, 106 S. Ct. 2639. Jeremiah's U.S. Constitutional rights to receive a fair trial free from Prejudice and Bias was violated by Judge Pavlich and Prosecutor Steiger. I was Subpoenaed and sequestered for three days of the Trial in June 2014. I was not allowed to testify. 5. A Michigan State case involving CSC 1st degree based exclusively on the evidence of a single purported eyewitness the alleged victim of the crime was granted a new trial because of Newly Discovered Impeachment Evidence. This case is People v Grissom involving SC case 140147 and COA Case 274148. Another Michigan Case People v Cress, 468 Mich 678, 692, 664 NW 2d 174 (2003). Sets the four prong standard that the Impeachment evidence must satisfy. People v Barbara, 400 Mich 352, 255 NW2d 171 (1977); People v Armstrong, Nw2d, No 142762, 2011 WL 5083255 (Mich, Oct 26, 2011). permits trial courts the discretion to grant a new trial based upon newly-discovered evidence when such evidence casts doubt on the credibility of a key witness. Numerous cases from jurisdictions around the country also recognize that newly discovered impeachment evidence that cast doubt on the credibility of a key witness can properly form the basis for the grant of a new trial for a criminal defendant. State v Plude, 750 NW2d 42 ( Wis 2008 ). State v Strahl, 768 NW2d 546 (SD 2009). Courts universally recognize that it is appropriate to grant a new trial in cases where the prosecution withholds impeachment evidence in violation of its disclosure obligations under Brady v Maryland, 373 US 83, 83 S Ct 1194 ( 1963 ). Imposing a per se rule that newly-discovered impeachment evidence cannot form the basis for a new trial would undermine the defendants constitutional rights under the confrontation clause of the Sixth Amendment. People v Hackett, 421 Mich 338, 348, 365 NW2d 120 ( 1984 ). 6. Please see the face book blog Jeremiah Dewey is Innocent for additional information.
Free will is the choice to do or don’t. We only participate in the dos! The don’ts are automatics! No one wants or anticipates the result of don’t. There is no such thing as free will. In cause & effect, neutralization doesn’t exist. If you can do something, you do nothing, you are just as responsible as anyone involved. What we do or don’t do effecting ourselves and each other inevitably. Everyone is somehow connecting. My story is the evidence of what lawyers in our judicial system don’t do. As a result, in the interest of justice, the proceeding of our judicial system is desperately needing help. About 15% of people in prison are not guilty! Amendment 5 and 6 are required that everyone is represented by an attorney. In our judicial system, lawyers are forcing people to plead guilty without trying to defend. “If you plead guilty, you’ll get 5 years. If you go to trial, you’ll get 30 years.” This is indirectly forcing guilty plea! This offer will not be refused by a black person even if he/she is innocent. “Get this over with!” We know how the court system is with us. Humans don’t make choices. Human process the result of how the presented condition perceived at that very second. I pleaded guilty for a crime staged by JPMorgan Chase Bank as strategy to get away from my lawsuit. In the compassion of the Lord, I won against the Federal Government without the help of any human lawyer after 4yrs in prison. My book entitled Accused & Pro Se is coming soon with details. There is no such thing as choosing what to do or don’t! The artificial and natural intelligence are both programmed, “if…then.” I’d like to be a guest in your show for details. I am Fundamentalist Philosopher, W***y Toussaint. [email protected]
I purchased a house at 106 Crossland St Anderson SC 29624 on May 1, 2018. I decided to stay in the house beginning May 9, 2018 while repairing it as I had nowhere else to live. Shortly thereafter, I reported what I believed to be drug dealers at 1905 W Whitner St only to have that information relayed to them in near real time. At that point “all hell broke loose.” I discovered that someone previously install hidden surveillance cameras and audio devices throughout the property. Sometimes, you can hear low volume conversations through the audio feedback. In some of the conversations persons claiming to be FBI and local law enforcement were discussing perfectly legal activities that were occurring inside the home. On one such occasion, these individuals were discussing my common-law wife / extended visitor Evelyn Brummage’s bodily functions as she used the restroom. I tried calling an attorney only to have these individuals began making threats of violence and arrest through the audio devices. They were even discussing the appointment that the attorney had set for me. Shortly thereafter, the attorney declined speaking with me any further. No one has ever served a warrant of any kind on me or Evelyn that would give them authorization to invade our privacy. The harassment continues 24/7. I contacted the South Carolina DOJ with no response. I believe that the properties located at the following adjacent propertys are involved given conversations that I have heard while outside in the yard. The folks claiming to be FBI has contacted Facebook or hacked my account to prevent this message from spreading. I posted a detailed report of all incidents on my page: https://www.facebook.com/drewey.whittaker Please help us protect our Constitutional Rights by sharing this post.
