Your AALS International Law Online Dance Card

AALS LogoThe 2021 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools is that organization's first online annual meeting. This year, law schools could purchase a registration package for all of their faculty, and it seems that most every U.S. law school did exactly that. If you're a faculty member at a U.S. law school, check with your school or the AALS to take advantage of the registration that will be free for you.

Here is a guide to help you negotiate the international law panels that will be offered during the 2021 AALS Annual Meeting:
