ASLME Celebrates Two important Anniversaries

2017 promises to be a special year for the American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics. As usual, we are excited to bring you a great lineup of conference opportunities, and we are thrilled with our scheduled issues of the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics and the American Journal of Law & Medicine. We also have additional reasons to celebrate as 2017 is the 45th birthday of JLME.

This month, however, we are pleased to be celebrating two particularly important anniversaries. January 2017 marks 15 years of employment at ASLME for Conference Director Katie Johnson and 10 years for JLME Assistant Editor Courtney McClellan.


Katie Johnson began working as ASLME’s Conference Director in January of 2002, fresh off stints as an event planner in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.. Her longevity at ASLME can be attributed to her thoughtful and meticulous planning of events and her dedication to making sure every attendee feels welcomed and appreciated when they arrive. Katie has become a familiar face at virtually every ASLME event over the last decade-and-a-half. When you see Katie at your next conference, please be sure to commend her on her fifteen years.

Courtney McClellan became an Editorial Assistant at JLME in January of 2007 and quickly rose to Assistant Editor due to her prodigious skills as an editor. Among many other tasks, Courtney has run the massive peer-review process for JLME and works in copyediting, layout, and production.  If you have ever enjoyed reading an issue of JLME, you probably owe Courtney a word of thanks.

Over the many years we have worked with Katie and Courtney, we have shared a lot of hard work, a lot of laughs, and had a lot of fun. We have watched them get married and start families. We have shared their disappointments and cheered them on through their many victories. Everyone at ASLME has much to be grateful for, but we are particularly grateful to work with such wonderful people for such an extended period of time. We can only hope for many more milestones to celebrate in the future.
