Michael Best, associate professor in The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, has been appointed to the National Conference of Lawyers and Scientists (NCLS,) a joint committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the American Bar Association's (ABA) Section of Science and Technology Law.
NCLS was established in 1974. The committee has fourteen members, half appointed by AAAS and half appointed by the ABA. The appointment serves as an opportunity to engage meaningfully at the intersection of science and technology and in matters of both domestic and foreign affairs. Committee goals include monitoring and examining emerging public policy issues of concern to lawyers, judges, scientists, and engineers.
