Why I'm Not Going to AALS This Year
$300 registration fee, and that's the student rate?! Fuck that! In addition to flight and hotel, and I was planning on sharing with the inimitable Gowder, and we were planning on getting a double room at the cheapest motel possible. And you have to pay extra for sessions, breakfasts, and lunches?! I'd rather fly out to meet up with my law prof friends on a more informal basis, or go to conferences with more interesting (and free!) paper presentations.
See you at Law and Society in Denver in May, and the American Sociological Association in San Francisco in August! I'll be presenting at the former likely, and hopefully at the latter as well.
