David Yellen.

Former Loyola University Chicago Law Dean David Yellen has been named the incoming chief executive officer of the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, better known as IAALS.

IAALS, which is based out of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, seeks to improve access to civil justice and system equity in the courts through research and advocacy.
