AALS Invites Open Source Proposals

The Association of American Law Schools invites all law professors to propose "open source" programs for the 2009 Annual Meeting in San Diego.

Open source programs are those that are not sponsored by any AALS Section.  It is meant to provide presentation opportunities for faculty members who have an innovative topic that they would like to present at the AALS Annual Meeting.

The deadline for submitting a proposal is April 10, 2008.  To do so, send an email to opensource@aals.org stating the program title, the names of the program planners, the process of how the program idea was generated, a description of what the program is trying to accomplish, a list of proposed speakers, and if the program will be published.  You can also include any other pertinent information that may be helpful to the reviewing committee.  The AALS will also consider whether there is a diversity of presenters and a multiplicity of planners and whether the proposed program includes both junior and senior teachers.

The deadline is approaching, but you still have time to gather some colleagues to put together a proposal for possible presentation.
