Dedicated teaching attorneys who gather yearly to foster and encourage relevant scholarship and state of the art academic skills

The Pacific Southwest Academy of Legal Studies in Business (PSWALSB) is made up of dedicated teaching attorneys who gather yearly to foster and encourage relevant scholarship and state of the art academic skills. Our region includes Southern California, Arizona, Southern Nevada and Hawaii; however, we also have members from many other states including New York, Colorado, Maryland, and Washington to name a few and several countries. All of us teach at higher educational institutions.

 

Established in the 1950s, PSWALSB is one of eleven regional subdivisions of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business (ALSB).

 

ALSB, founded in 1924, is an association of legal professors and scholars with over 1,000 members teaching predominately in schools of business in colleges and universities. Members come from all fifty states, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, England, and other nations. 

 

Like the academy itself, PSWALSB works to foster understanding and cooperation between college and university administrators and our constituency.

 

 

Welcome To PSWALB!

Conference Payment

PSWALSB 2023-2024 Board

For the past 30 years our conferences have been held in Palm Springs, California with 25 years at the Hilton Palm Springs. For many years we have taken advantage of the President’s Day weekend to hold our lively, robust, and congenial conferences. Each member participant gives each other member curtesy, encouragement, and support. Consequesntly, PSWALSB has a reputation of being the best each year.  This is also true due to our Board-which chooses a new rotating member each year as the President rotates to the status of Immediate Past President before ending his or her last year in the rotation.
