Open-Submission Programs for the 2016 AALS Annual Meeting


The Program Committee for the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools held a request proposals for open-submission programs for the 2016 Annual Meeting in New York City. There are five types of open-submission programs for the 2016 Annual Meeting:

  • Crosscutting programs focus on multi-subject and interdisciplinary topics that transcend any one legal field and offer new perspectives on legal issues or the profession.
  • [New] Discussion Group programs are sessions that provide a setting for less formal discussion of topics among a larger group of participants.
  • [New] Academy programs are open-submission programs that do not fit into any of the other four categories. Have an idea for a great program that does not fit into any of the other categories? Submit a proposal for an academy program.
  • Symposium programs are full- or half-day sessions that focus on in-depth scholarly exploration of a topic of academic interest.
  • Hot Topic programs focus on topics that emerged too late to be included in other types of programs.

Arc of Your Career Programs for the 2016 AALS Annual Meeting


As part of the AALS’s effort to respond to changes in academia and the legal profession, the AALS Task Force on Professional Development (formerly the Professional Development Committee) has been asking: Are there aspects of professional development to which the AALS should be giving more attention?  If so, what are these areas and how can or should the AALS better help legal education professionals (including faculty and administrators) with professional development over the course of their careers? To this end, the AALS Task Force on Professional Development requested proposals for sessions to address these and related issues.
