Five $800 stipends will be made available for junior faculty!
Texas A&M School of Law will provide a travel grant of up to $800 for five junior faculty. ​The deadline for the applications for the travel stipend is Friday, September 25, 2015, and we will give priority to junior faculty who have never before attended the AALS ADR Section Works-in-Progress conference. We will award the travel stipends on a first-come-first-served basis. If any of the five stipends remain after awarding the stipends to junior faculty who have not yet attended, the remaining stipends will be awarded to junior faculty who have attended before, also on a first-come-first-served basis.

Close proximity to airport, hotel, and Starbucks!
Texas A&M School of Law is located in downtown Fort Worth, just 30 minutes from the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Airport. Next door to the law school is the Sheraton Hotel. Directly across the street are the Fort Worth Water Gardens, a wonderful space described as “an architectural and engineering marvel” that includes three pools of water creating a peaceful and contemplative environment that participants could enjoy during a break from the conference. The Omni Hotel and Starbucks Coffee are just one block away.

Lots of direct flights available!
Fort Worth is conveniently located in the center of the country, just a few hour flight from either coast. The Dallas-Fort Worth Airport (DFW), the second largest in the country, has direct flights to over 200 locations around the world, and is a hub for American Airlines.

Block of rooms already reserved!
Texas A&M has reserved a block of rooms at the Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel and Spa, for the conference participants at a rate of $139.00 per night. The Sheraton is directly next door to Texas A&M so there would be no need for a bus or other transportation between the law school and the hotel as conference participants would be able to walk.
