Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
2660 Woodley Road NW
Washington, DC

AALS hosts an annual Faculty Recruitment Conference to facilitate the hiring process for law faculty candidates and schools with open positions. Law schools that are hiring meet and interview candidates in person at the FRC. Because the conference is part of AALS Faculty Recruitment Services, candidates who have paid the FAR fee are not charged to attend the FRC.

Schools typically prearrange the interviews conducted at the conference. Candidates who have not prearranged interviews with attending law schools should review the advice provided in the Becoming a Law Teacher material as to whether it is worthwhile to attend the FRC. For more details about how to get the most out of the hiring conference, click here.

For room reservations at the Marriott Wardman Park, make your reservation at Marriott Wardman Park Reservation Link. The room rate is $279 for single and double occupancy plus taxes. Cancel by 6 pm on scheduled date of arrival to avoid being charged for one night. The cut-off date for reservations is September 23, 2020.


Law schools participating in the FRC typically contact candidates they wish to consider before the conference and schedule onsite interviews with them in advance. Interviews are usually scheduled every 30 minutes; thus, with time to navigate the hotel, the actual interview length is usually about 20-25 minutes. However, AALS does not specify what hours to interview or how long the interviews should last.
