Labor/Employment Conference: Deadline Approaching!

The Second Annual Colloquium on Current Scholarship in Labor/Employment Law is on September 28-29 at U.Colorado and U.Denver law schools, but the deadline to register is in just a few days -- Monday, July 30th.  There's no fee, so registering entails only giving your contact info and, if you'd like to present a paper, listing the name of the paper.  The paper can be just a work in progress (for example, by the conference date all I'll have a one-page Abstract and my usual amateurish sort of PowerPoint); with dozens of labor/employment profs attending, this is probably the best possible audience to present a work in progress before you finalize it.  Also noteworthy is the Colorado Law Review plan to publish several of the papers from the conference; the registration page asks if you'd like to be considered for this.

So far the number of registrants is way above last year's colloquium (the "First Annual"), which was pretty big itself (about 50 presentations); the uptick may reflect (1) the success of last year's drawing lots of repeat presenters and new folks and (2) the change in location from Milwaukee to Colorado (which coincidentally was the move I made a few months ago, but whatever Colorado's attractions, I'm skeptical that the Coors Brewery Tour can match the Miller Brewery Tour!).

If you have any questions, feel free to email the organizers: Roberto Corrada (DU), Melissa Hart (CU), or Marty Katz (DU).  I'm merely an "emeritus" organizer, retired after last year's colloquium, with no authority over anything -- but since I'm also at CU now, feel free to email me any questions as well.

Please pass this information on to others, especially those who may be new to, or completely outside, legal academia.  Last year, it was nice that word of the event somehow reached a lot of aspiring profs, non-profs, and others who really needed the work-in-progress audience more than those of us who already have been prof'ing for a few years.  I hope we can draw a similar amount of new blood to this year's event.

Prof. Moss, what you really need to try is the New Belgium Brewery tour in Fort Collins.

Hi Scott,

I'm looking forward to this conference!

And, I'm (as always) enjoying reading your posts... have you moved yet? Can you send me your new email?

Cheers
Miriam

Scott:

Your powerpoint presentations aren't "amateurish" at all. "Busy," "cluttered," "overstuffed" -- words like that would be much more appropriate.

Seriously, this should be a great conference.
