Advancing Legal Education: Meeting the Alumni, Development, and Communication Challenges of the 21st Century

The Institutional Advancement program is available as a PDF.

Please join institutional advancement professionals for the Institutional Advancement Section’s two day program. This program offers the opportunity to learn and discuss the current issues in legal education. While law faculty may wish attend individual sessions during this two day program, we encourage institutional advancement professionals to participate fully in both days. In addition to plenary sessions on both Friday and Saturday, there are three concurrent session tracks for Alumni, Communications, and Development professionals to choose from. Non-faculty professionals only attending the Institu­tional Advancement program pay a reduced registration fee. Law faculty and others attending regular the program are not eligible for this rate.

IA Registration includes admission to Section on Institutional Advancement sessions, the Exhibit Hall and Section on Institutional Advancement Luncheon. Registrants may also attend the AALS Luncheon on Saturday, January 4 for an additional fee of $85. Non-faculty professional staff who want to attend any additional events including the AALS Gala or would like to register their spouse/significant other must pay the full rate.

Non-faculty professionals can register for this program online if they are listed in our database as professional staff. If you are not listed as professional staff, please contact your Dean's Office to update your status.
