Our beloved Mother Ship, the Association of American Law Schools, has reverted to form. After stunning everyone with a conference in Montreal last July -- July is the right time to be in Montreal -- the conference organizers have reverted to form, scheduling an interesting conference in a very nice place but at the wrong time.
The conference itself looks like a great one. It's called New Ideas for Law School Teachers: Teaching Intentionally. And it's designed not for newcomers but for experienced teachers who have found their teaching sliding more and more into habit. You can get a rundown of the impressive list of speakers at the link above. The event is scheduled for June 10-14 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Vancouver is, of course, a very nice place, but the average high temperature in June is 66°F, and it tends to be awfully cloudy, though according to the Canadian weather site you can expect at least two days without rain during the four-day conference.
Deadline for early registration is May 8
