Junior Federal Courts Conference @ American University -- April 3-4, 2008

I was going to post about the verdict in the Isiah Thomas case, but, well, that would be a slight conflict of interest (hint: see if you can find the name of the plaintiff's lawyer). So, I'll just say "Let's Go Knicks," and leave it at that. (After all, baseball season is certainly over.)

Instead, I wanted to post the announcement about a really exciting conference my new colleague Amanda Frost and I are putting together for junior Federal Courts prawfs. It's going to be April3-4, 2008, here at American University Washington College of Law (it's a mouthful), and it will feature panels on scholarship, the place of Federal Courts in the larger legal academy, and various pedagogical issues. Janet Alexander, Dick Fallon, Jim Pfander, and Judith Resnik will be moderating the panels, and it should be a great chance for folks teaching or writing in the field to connect, share their work, and otherwise enjoy the cherry blossoms!

The announcement itself is available here.

I didn't see it in the NY Times story, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess "Anne Vladeck". Chalk up another victory for a great firm.
