Reflections On The AALS

Legal Education | Permalink


Re: Part III of Horwitz's series on the AALS meeting (proposing a limit on the number of times a law professor can appear on a panel): we don't need to institute some complicated scheme to limit the number of appearances by law professors on AALS panels. If the demand for Profs X, Y, and Z is great, any limit on the number of times X, Y, & Z can speak at the AALS will just distort the "markets" for speakers and listeners (e.g. perhaps less people will attend AALS if limits are imposed on Profs X, Y, & Z, or perhaps X, Y, and Z themselves might be less likely to attend, etc.). Instead, why not expand the AALS by another day or just add more panels for novice professors?
