AALS Sections are interest groups comprised of faculty members and professional staff of AALS member schools. (Others interested in joining a Section may do so as associate members.) Sections present programs at the AALS Annual Meeting, provide newsletters for their members, and conduct other activities of interest to their members, such as mentoring programs, exam exchanges, directories, and discussion lists.

Sign up for one or more Sections by submitting a request to AALS Staff.
