It's been nice seeing so many folks here in NOLA for the AALS conference and the various shadow conferences.

For those interested, I'll be playing the role of Jew or Heretic later today at the Law Professors’ Christian Fellowship gathering. Specifically, I'll be riffing on Les Miserables and political obligation. My talk will be on a 3pm panel at the Wyndham Hotel. (Details after the jump).

Tonight, at 10pm, we'll be having our happy hour at Whiskey Blue at the W Hotel on Poydras Street. 

And tomorrow, I'll be appearing in lieu of Shima Baradaran at the panel on Scholarship Tips for New Law Professors. That panel will be in the Hilton at 1030am in the Jasperwood room on the 3d Floor.

Hope to see many of you at these gatherings or during the interstices. Happy new year.

A reminder for those attending the AALS in New Orleans that the 2013 Conference on Christian Legal Thought sponsored by the Lumen Christi Institute at the University of Chicago and the Law Professors' Christian Fellowship will take up the nature of law, based partly on a pending statement on the nature of law from a group of Evangelical and Catholic scholars.
