2018 Annual Meeting

Houston, Texas



The American Society for Legal History will be holding its 48th annual meeting in Houston, Texas from November 8 -11, 2018. The preliminary draft program is now available at 2018 ASLH Annual Meeting Program (Draft).

Additional information can be found on this page, which was  prepared by the chair of the Local Arrangements Committee.

The meeting is being sponsored by the University of Houston Law Center and the University of Houston.

Pre-registration is no longer available.  However, you can still register on site at the ASLH Registration Desk. The price is the same as pre-registration prices for ASLH members ($275, $100 for student members), but does not include the cost of the annual lunch. The Hotel requires final numbers for the lunch in advance of the meeting. Non-member registration is $375 ($125 for students) to incentivize people to become ASLH members. These rates also do not include the annual lunch. Please note that refunds can no longer be claimed in that numbers had to be guaranteed to the hotel on October 15th

Caution: Do not be misled by outside housing or travel agencies claiming to be the official housing provider for the upcoming ASLH Annual Meeting in Houston. You can only book rooms at the ASLH’s discounted rate through the link provided in your registration confirmation email. Unfortunately, unscrupulous providers sometimes claim to provide housing for meetings and conventions when they are in no way affiliated with the sponsoring organization. This practice is a scam that attendees should be aware of in order to avoid passing on personal or financial information. Reservations made by unaffiliated organizations may be illegitimate, not have the rooms to sell, have unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable.

Host an ASLH Conference

The American Society for Legal History’s Standing Committee on Annual Meetings invites proposals to host or sponsor (in full or in part) a future Annual Meeting. Interesting venues, affordable hotel rates, tax exemption for out-of-state non-profits and reasonable funding support for meeting events are highly favored in site selection.
