AALS Annual Meeting — AALS Core Educational Values: Guideposts for the Pursuit of Excellence in Challenging Times

Date(s) of Conference:

January 4-8, 2011


San Francisco, CA


The 2011 Annual Meeting in San Francisco provides members with an opportunity to discuss how the Association’s core values guide law schools as they address the issues confronting legal education.   It is precisely because law schools have pursued these values that legal education in the U.S. is the model and envy of the world.  Especially in the face of daunting challenges it is important that law schools continue to be anchored in these values as they adapt to necessary changes in what they do and how they do it.

Call for Papers:

  • Open Source sessions at the Annual Meeting are novel ideas for programs proposed by groups of faculty members and selected by a committee in a competitive process.  The programs should be innovative and include interactive and out of the ordinary approaches to presenting the topics.

    • Program title
