Two Upcoming Conferences

From Professor Bob Lawless:

On May 2-3, the University of Illinois College of Law and the American Bankruptcy Institute are hosting "A Debtor's World: An Interdisciplinary Academic Symposium on Debt." Speakers and commentators represent some of the leading minds in a wide variety of disciplines including history, law, economics, finance, neuroscience, strategic management, organizational theory, and other fields. The keynote speaker will be James Scurlock, producer of the documentary Maxed Out. We are hoping that this event will lead to a flourishing of interdisciplinary conversations on how our society should optimize our use of debt. The conference will be held at the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign, Illinois. More information about the event can be found at http://www.abiworld.org/Debt08/index.htm.

On the day before our conference, you can enjoy "Lawyers, Law Firms & the Legal Profession: An Ethical View of the Business of Law," a symposium jointly sponsored by the DePaul University College of Law and the Commercial Law League of America. That event will take place in Chicago, Illinois, and more information can be at http://www.clla.org/events/default.cfm#201. This symposium is part of the Commercial Law League's spring meeting. Topics include a discussion of the future of the billable hour and how lawyer mobility is changing the practice of business law. I have attached flyer with more information for this particular event.
