Creating a Conference from Scratch

Tomorrow Wash U and SLU will be hosting the Fifth Annual Labor and Employment Law Colloquium.  It's a terrific event, with close to 70 presenters, and I'm very excited to be one of the hosts.

The event itself is a testament to the power of a good idea and hard work by a few folks -- in this case, Scott Moss, Joe Slater, and Paul Secunda.  Here's the original post by Scott that prompted the conference, and here's his follow-up post.  I think it's a great example of what a few prawfs can do when they put their mind to it.

It was a great conference. This was the first year that I was able to attend, and I thought that every aspect of it was excellent.

Thanks again to Paul and Scott for doing so much work and then giving me equal credit. And this year's conference was great -- thanks to the Wash. U. and St. Louis U. folks!

More evidence of how good an idea this is - it served as the model for the AALS ADR Section's Works-in-Progress Conference, which is now in its 4th year.
