Recruitment Conference

Thursday, October 11 – Saturday, October 13, 2018


Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
2660 Woodley Road NW
Washington, DC

AALS Faculty Recruitment Services acts as a matchmaker between law faculty candidates and schools with open positions. The upcoming 2018 Faculty Recruitment Conference is the last step in the process, where schools meet and interview candidates in person. Because the conference is part of AALS Faculty Recruitment Services, the cost of attendance was included in the FAR fee. There is no additional conference fee.

Schools typically prearrange their interviews. Few interviews are arranged at the conference itself. Your participation at the conference is optional; consider not attending the conference if you have no interviews scheduled.

RSVP and attendance confirmation at the FRC is   available online now. For room reservations, the Marriott Wardman Park is now sold out. The Omni Shoreham (located across the street at 2500  Calvert Street, NW) has rooms available for $239 single occupancy/$259 double occupancy. Cancellations must be made by 72 hours prior to arrival to avoid being charged for one night.  The cut-off date for reservations is Friday, September 21.

After September 21, if you still need a hotel reservation, please contact


Law schools participating in 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.
