Schedule at a Glance - Annual Meeting

Last Updated March 28, 2022


The AALS is excited to return to our first in-person annual meeting in two years in sunny San Diego,
California. The 2023 Annual Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 4 through Saturday, January
7, 2023
. The theme for the 2023 Annual Meeting selected by President Erwin Chemerinsky is “How Law
Schools Can Make a Difference.”

We share your enthusiasm to see and network with faculty colleagues in January. As we gather for the
first time and due to the ongoing pandemic variant cautions, we will be implementing some changes to
the program schedule.

Program planning for the 2023 Annual Meeting is currently in progress. Our 104 sections and the Annual
Meeting program committees are working on a schedule filled with sessions that appeal to law school
deans, faculty, and administrators at any level of their careers. Be on the lookout for more details in the
coming months.

Proposals

2023 Annual Meeting in January.
