Postponing the Externships 11 Conference

From Prof. Sophia Hamilton and Prof. Stephanie Davidson

Dear Externship Community,


After much reflection, the Externships 11 Planning Committee, in consultation with the Site Selection Committee, has decided to postpone Externships 11 to Fall 2022. While we were eager to convene this year, we have received a great deal of feedback that the emphasis on coming together in person is important to our community members – as it is for each of us. So, we are postponing the conference in hopes of increasing our chances of having meaningful, in-person time to rebuild together next fall in Southern California.


We will announce the new date shortly. In the meantime, the RFP is still open, and we are extending the deadline several months into the future. We will send an updated RFP document in the coming weeks, which will include an invitation to folks who are interested in presenting but don’t yet have an idea outside of a general area of interest We hope to take advantage of the additional time by pairing those of you who are interested (but not yet inspired) with other similarly-minded individuals, so that you can spend some time this winter and spring building out your ideas. 


Thank you for being a part of this vibrant, warm community. We are grateful to be your colleagues, and we look forward to seeing you all in person next year. In the meantime, please do not forget that the AALS Externships Committee has many opportunities to meet (you can find them here) and share ideas.


All our best,


The Externships Planning Committee
