Online and onsite registrations can be done through June 9. Note that you will be charged an additional $50 onsite fee after June 6. Faxed or mailed paper registrations and check payments must be received by May 17.
In Individual Registration, a user can register only themselves for an event. Using Group Registration, a user can register any faculty/staff member from their law school for the chosen event. Both of these types of registration require your AALS username and password to access.

Registration fees will be refunded, less a $50 processing fee, for written cancellations received by May 24, 2018.

There is not a limit but we have found that people have more errors the more people they try to register. We recommend that you register 5 people at a time and up to 16 sessions at a time per registrant. If you need to register more than 5 people, register the first five, then log out with the login/logout link in the bottom right corner (do not use the link in the top right corner) and log back in to register. This clears the system and reduces chances of errors. Please note it may take up to a couple of minutes to move from screen to screen with that much data.
Yes. When you login to Group Registration, simply choose your name under the “Add Registrant” option. However, if you are only registering yourself, it is easier to use Individual Registration.
First, contact your Dean’s Office to ensure that the faculty/staff member is listed on your school’s AALS Roster. For further assistance with this process, please email the registration team.

Yes, there is a place to insert your email address to have a copy of both the itemized invoice and the hotel instructional emails sent to you. A copy will always be sent to the faculty/staff member(s) that you are registering, as well.
On the payment page you may notice that the billing address does appear already populated with an address that may not be tied to the credit card you are using for payment. This can be confusing, but you should not change this address. This action will not cause your credit card to be declined. This address refers to your school’s billing address with AALS and not the billing address specific to the credit card being used for registration payment.
The registration system gives this error when the credit card information has been entered incorrectly. It does not mean that the card has been declined. This error means the credit card has not been found. To try to clear this error, please check that the card information has been entered correctly (correct number of digits, no spaces, numbers have been entered properly, expiration date is correct, etc.) and then submit once more. If you continue to receive this error please contact the registration team.
