We are pleased to invite to you to exhibit at the 2011 AALS Annual Meeting to be held January 5-8 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, located at 333 O’Farrell Street in San Francisco. We expect over 3,500 law professors, deans, administrators and law librarians who buy and influence buyers in a number of legal, academic instruction and office administration areas.  We hope that you plan to take this opportunity to showcase your products and services.

Visitors to the AALS web site find information on every company exhibiting at the Annual Meeting, including contact and product information, as well as a link to the home page of each exhibiting company.  This information is placed on our web site immediately after the Annual Meeting and is available to visitors to our web site throughout the year.

Each non-law school exhibiting company will receive one full registration per booth and unlimited "exhibits only" registrations for other non-law school booth personnel.  The goal is to maximize your company's exposure to the decision makers in legal education.

This year, there will be a Committee on Research program on Book Publishing Workshop for the Aspiring Legal Scholar at which attendees will be encouraged to visit the Exhibit Hall.  Please join us in making this a very successful exhibition at the 2011 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
