AALS Cancels 2020 Clinical Conference

Dear colleagues,

After careful consideration of the risks posed by COVID-19 and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 AALS Conference on Clinical Legal Education scheduled for May 3-6 in Orlando, Florida.

For 42 years, AALS has convened this important opportunity for clinical legal educators to connect, share ideas, and discuss the latest innovations and approaches in clinical and experiential legal education. The members of the planning committee have organized an exceptional event, and we look forward to presenting their program at the 2021 conference in St. Louis, Missouri.

For those that have already registered for the meeting, all fees will be refunded to the original form of payment.

While we are disappointed to cancel this event, the health and safety of our attendees and staff are our first priority. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to next year’s conference.


Judith Areen, Executive Director
