The sixth annual Rocky Mountain Legal Writing Conference will be taking place on March 17 and 18, 2006, at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law in Tucson, Arizona. Anyone who teaches legal writing is welcome to attend.
As with most regional legal writing conferences in the U.S., there is no registration fee for attending this conference. There will be a welcome reception on Friday evening, March 17th, and breakfast and lunch will be provided on Saturday, March 18th, all at no cost to participants. Participants are responsible for their own transportation and hotel expenses. At the conference website, you will find information about reduced conference rates for local hotels. All participants do need to register, so the planners will know how many people to prepare for. You can register at:

In addition, if you have never been in Tucson in the spring, you may be surprised at how beautiful and inviting a town in the desert can be. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, where you can see the desert in bloom, is a particular gem worth visiting while you are in Tucson:
