In 2022, the annual conference returns to Chicago for the first time since 2001. We’ll convene November 10-12 at the Chicago Grand Sheraton, and look forward to sharing more details about the meeting as they become available. We hope you’ll make plans to join us!


Attendees at pre-conference or conference events will be required to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination or to present proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken no more than 24 hours before their arrival at the conference.

The ASLH will of course expect all attendees to comply with Chicago public health orders in force at the time of the annual meeting. The ASLH Health Committee will continue to monitor and evaluate conditions, as well as CDC guidelines, and to consider other measures we can take to help mitigate risks of attending the conference.

We encourage early registration. Registration is fully refundable until October 19, 2022.

Attendance at the annual luncheon is included in the price of the meeting.

Only one registration at a time is permitted.  If you wish to register a guest, you will need to register your guest independently.

In registering for the conference you agree to conform to AHA standards for professional conduct adopted by the ASLH:

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.
