In the last 7 years, I have gone to most of the conferences sponsored by St. John's Law School, including one that was sponsored in London England. They are simply wonderful. David Gregory the conference director is a wonderful speaker, a good friend and an excellent host. If you want to write a paper, you may have the opportunity for it to be published in the law review or in another scholarly journal. Most importantly, in addition to learning a great deal about the law, these conferences are simply fun. I look forward to see you.
