Hope to See You in D.C.!

Yes, I hope to see you at the AALS Annual Meeting in D.C., but I also hope to see some of you in D.C. at the end of this week.  This Thursday and Friday (Oct. 27-28) the ABA and the American Association of Law Schools Criminal Justice Section are hosting a Legal Educators' Colloquium within a larger ABA fall conference.  We academic-types have planned the plenary as well as a break-out session, all on the theme of "Reducing Reliance on Incarceration."  Here's a link to the program.

If you register for the conference, you are also welcome to join us on the afternoon of Thursday Oct. 27th to workshop exciting works-in-progress by some of our colleagues.  Workshopping starts at 2:00 pm in the Connect Room at the Capitol Hill Liaison, and the line-up of presenters is after the jump.

I've taken some license with these titles/summaries, so my apologies to our presenters if they are not spot-on.
