Recruitment Conference

Thursday, October 3 – Saturday, October 5, 2019

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 2019 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.

For room reservations at the Marriott Wardman Park, make your reservation at Marriott Wardman Park Reservation Link. The room rate is $269 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 11, 2019.

After September 11, if you still need a hotel reservation, please email AALS.


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.
