Conference Registration

There is no registration fee for attending the conference, and meals are included.  When booking your travel, please keep in mind that the conference will begin with a poster presentation and reception at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in the evening on Friday, April 27th.  Plenaries, workshops and panels will begin early on Saturday, April 28th at Chicago-Kent College of Law, and there will be a group conference dinner on Saturday, April 28th. The AALS Clinical Conference will begin on Sunday, April 29th.


Hotel Registration through the conference is closed, please email Heather Harper with any questions.

Hotel accommodations were available at the Palmer House Hilton, 17 East Monroe Street, Chicago, Illinois 60603.

As has been our tradition, we hope to secure funding support to defray at least some hotel expenses. In the event our support is insufficient to cover one night for all participants, we will allocate sponsorship first-come, first-served based on the date of registration for the conference.

To be eligible for this benefit, you must register for the conference, and indicate the nights you will need a hotel room in Chicago. Once funding is secured, those who received a free night will be registered directly for that night, and any additional attendees who do not receive this benefit will be given a conference code to take advantage of the discounted block rate, which will be available until April 5, 2018. Please give us your indication as early as possible, as we may need to increase the hotel block for Friday, April 27th to secure a lower rate.
