Michael Allan Wolf writes to let us know about the upcoming Nelson Symposium at the University of Florida:
The University of Florida Levin College of Law is hosting the Ninth Annual Richard E. Nelson Symposium on Friday, February 12. The topic of this year’s program is “Local Government Liability Under Federal Law: Regulating the Sacred and the Profane.” Outside law professor presenters include Ashira Ostrow (Hofstra) on RLUIPA, Alan Weinstein (Cleveland-Marshall) on adult use zoning, and Asmara Tekle (Texas Southern) on sex offender residency requirements.
Professor Wolf will be speaking on “How Local Governments End Up Making New Federal Caselaw.” You can check out the brochure, and if you can make it to Florida (never a bad thing this time of year, especially given what Phil said yesterday), it sounds like a great event.
