The Marvin Anderson Lecture will be presented during the luncheon by Professor Keith Rowley of UNLV (right). Registration for the program is free except that the reception and dinner require a separate registration and payment of a fee.
And speaking of Keith Rowley, he has announced that UNLV's William S. Boyd School of Law will host the 2015 International Conference on Contracts (a.k.a. "KCON10") February 27 & 28, 2015.
The conference was held there in 2010, so we hope to return and win back all the money we lost at the craps tables five years ago.
