I agree with just about everything Dan says, but think there is one caveat. If, for whatever reason, you are trying to move before you have an established record of scholarship equivalent to what a decent school might expect of a senior untenured prof, there are benefits to being in the directory. By placing yourself in the directory under those circumstances, you are essentially asking the law schools to (re)consider you against the entry-level pool. While that can be humbling (and can cost you a year or two on the tenure clock), it can also be effective. I think every year there are at least a handful of individuals in this situation who find good positions through the AALS process. (I have been on the hiring committee five times at two very different second-tier schools and we always seem to interview a few of these folks.)
