Exhibitor Registration

Your company receives one or more complimentary full registrations as part of your booth purchase. Full registration allows access to AALS programs and meetings for exhibit representatives excluding law school faculty or employees of a law school. Exhibitors receive an unlimited number of “Exhibit Booth-Only” registrations at no charge. The exhibit hall can only be used by employees of your company who are not law school faculty or employees.

Exhibitors are now able to register their entire team by using group registration. To register please go to the AALS registration page and click the “Group Registration” link. You will log in with your email and password. Refer to the instructions sent in your confirmation email. If you have forgotten your password click the “forgot your password” link on the login page to reset it. Once you log in, click “add registrant” to add your exhibit representatives. You can select the “Exhibit Booth Only” registration fee for those members who are only going to be at the exhibit booth. For those who want to attend the full conference (paid or one fee-waived) click the “Exhibitor Full Registration” fee. If you have more than one fee-waiver or cannot find a person, please contact AALS at Add each member by clicking “Add Another Registrant” until the final person, in which case you’ll click “Add to Group” to go back to the registration page. Click “Add to Cart” and on the next page, enter the code in the discount field to accept your fee-waiver. From there, confirm the information on the next two pages to complete the process.” If you need assistance, contact Erick Brown, AALS Registration and Database Manager, at
