How to Register

If you are registering for yourself, use Individual Registration. If you are registering on behalf of someone else or a group of people, use Group Registration. Please register no later than May 31st to ensure that you will have timely access to the workshop.

If you are unable to register, the most likely reason is that you are not yet listed in the AALS database because you are new to your school. Contact your dean’s office to be added to the AALS Law School Roster/Directory of Law Teachers. Once your dean’s office has added you, you should be able to access your AALS account and register online. If you need assistance with this process, contact

If you are still unable to register or are required to pay your fee via check, please request to register with a paper form via mail or fax by emailing


Faculty of Member & Fee-Paid Schools$295
Faculty of Non Fee-Paid Law Schools$345

After you register online, you will receive two email confirmations within a few minutes. One of them is a receipt, and the other contains information you will need to access the Zoom conference.

Does AALS offer a one-day registration fee? 

We do not offer a one-day registration. Registration is for the entire workshop. 

What is a registration transfer? 

If you have already registered but find that you are unable to attend the Workshop for New Law Teachers, you may transfer your registration to another faculty member at no cost. These requests must be made in writing, from the person currently registered. Email by June 1, 2021, and include the name of the individual who will receive the registration in your place. 

Is my law school an AALS member school? 

You can check your institution’s membership status on the AALS Member Schools website. 

What’s my username? 

Your username is typically your school-affiliated email address. If you have never used online registration before, check to see if you are in the AALS database by entering your email address into the Forgot Password portal. If you are in the database, the portal will send you login instructions for creating a password. If you are not in the database, please contact AALS support. For all other questions about signing in, please email the Registration team

What’s my password? How do I get/reset it? 

Use this link to have an email sent to your school address to reset your AALS account password. You may also use this link if you have never set up a password for your AALS account. 

How do I register if my school requires that I pay by check? 

Online registration is strongly encouraged. If special circumstances prevent you from doing so, we also offer the option to submit a paper form by fax to (202) 872-1829, or by regular mail (using check or credit card payment options) to:

AALS Registration
1614 20th St NW
Washington, DC 20009. 

My school wants to submit payment by electronic direct deposit or wire transfer; does AALS accept these forms of payment? 

 AALS does not accept payment by electronic deposit or wire transfer. 

How can I request Access-Related Accommodations for the workshop? 

For information on access-related accommodations please visit the Accessibility tab directly to the left. For further information, contact

Group Registration

I’m not a faculty member. How do I get a login to register members of my law school? 

If you are a professional staff member of an AALS member or fee-paid law school and do not have an AALS username, please contact the Registration team

Is there a discount for using Group Registration? 

There is no group or per-person discount for using Group Registration. 

Can I use Group Registration to register only one person/myself?

If you are only registering yourself, it is easier to use Individual Registration. If you are registering one person other than yourself, yes. Group Registration gives you the ability to perform the registration for other members of your law school. 

Is there a limit on how many people I can register with Group Registration? 

There is no limit, but we have found that people have more errors the more people they try to register. We recommend that you register 5 people at a time. If you need to register more than 5 people, register the first five, then log out with the login/logout link in the bottom right corner (do not use the link in the top right corner) and log back in to register. This clears the system and reduces chances of errors. Please note it may take up to a couple of minutes to move from screen to screen with that much data. 

How do I add someone to my school if their name does not appear in the Group Registration system? 

A faculty member may not appear in the system if they have not been added to the AALS database because they are new to your school. First, contact your dean’s office to ensure that the faculty/staff member is listed on your school’s AALS Roster. If they have been added to the Roster and you need further assistance, please email the Registration team

Do individual faculty/staff members receive notification that I have registered them? 

Yes, they automatically receive a copy of their personalized receipt and Zoom instructions.  

Can I have a copy of the registration invoice(s) sent to my email account? 

Yes, there is a field in the registration form where you can insert your email address to have a copy of both the itemized receipt and the Zoom instructions sent to you.  

Why is the credit card billing address already filled out? 

If the billing address is already populated with an address that is not tied to the credit card you are using for payment, do not change this address. This address refers to your school’s billing address with AALS, not the billing address specific to the credit card being used for registration payment. Leaving it pre-populated will not cause your credit card to be declined. 

Why do I receive the error “Item Not Found” when I press Submit on the payment screen? 

The registration system gives this error when the credit card information has been entered incorrectly. It does not mean that the card has been declined. Please check that the card information has been entered correctly (correct number of digits, no spaces, numbers have been entered properly, expiration date is correct, etc.) and then submit again. If you continue to receive this error, please contact the Registration team
