AALL Annual Meeting 2021: Must-Have Program Topics


In case you missed it during the start of the academic year and general global chaos, the AMPC has published its list of must have program topics! A number of these topics explicitly pertain to Foreign, Comparative, and International Law. For example:

  • Research and Analysis: specialized areas of research including foreign and international.
  • Information Management: preservation of legal information, including foreign law digital preservation methods.
  • Marketing and Outreach: access to justice, including legal aid nationally and internationally.

Additional must-have topics imply an FCIL relationship, such as cross-cultural communication, cultural competency, etc. The complete list of must-have topics can be seen here, along with further information on how to submit your program proposals: https://www.aallnet.org/conference/resources/proposing-a-program/must-program-topics/

The call for proposals will occur on October 1, with all program proposals being due at 11:59pm on November 30. However, it is never too early to start thinking about program ideas!

The FCIL-SIS Education Committee stands ready to assist you in developing and drafting your proposals. Please contact Hunter Whaley (hwhaley@columbia.edu) or Dennis Sears (searsd@law.byu.edu) for assistance with any program ideas you may have. Cleveland will only be as successful as we all make it! We look forward to hearing from you during the proposal process.


Dennis S. Sears and Hunter Whaley, Education Committee Chairs
