Law & Society Ass'n Conference (May 29-June 1, Montreal) Has Panels on Legal Profession

Posted by Alan Childress

The annual meeting of the Law & Society Association, this year in conjunction with the Canadian Law & Society Association, will be held in Montreal, Canada, from May 29-June 1, 2008 (with some events, particularly of the Canadian group, a few days after).  Here is program and hotel information, and a guide to the many interesting panels proposed: Download prog_4_10.doc.  Some of them deal with issues of legal business and practice, including trends in big firms and problems of prosecutorial misconduct.  One I look forward to is hearing Marc Galanter and Bill Henderson on "the [new, elastic] tournament of lawyers" and their study forthcoming in Stanford Law Review, as noted on at Legal Ethics Forum here, with a link to the SSRN version of their important paper.

UPDATE:  Other Law & Society panels on the legal profession, law firms, and global practice are listed in comments to this post at LEF, including a May 29 presentation (on biglaw engagement agreements) by one of its editors, John Steele.  That panel goes on my to-do list too.
