Information about the annual Academy of Legal Studies in Business ("ALSB") conference is available here.
Supposedly, the conference hotel, the Hyatt Olive 8, is already booked. (Who knew that you had to book earlier than January 24 for an early August academic conference). I hear that the conference organizers are negotiating for reduced rates at the nearby hotels, or perhaps more rooms will come available (at the conference rate of $159/night) at the Hyatt Olive 8.
This will be my first ALSB conference and my first trip to Seattle. I am looking forward to it. The ALSB conference is the annual, national conference for legal studies professors in business schools. Last fall I attended, presented, and enjoyed the SEALSB regional conference in Tampa. I am told that ALSB will be similar, but on a much larger scale.
If you are interested in this conference and/or are interested in teaching law in business schools, it might be worth joining ALSB. The new member rate is only $30.
Hope to see some of our readers in Seattle in August.
