Reminder: March 1st is the deadline to register for the Rocky Mountain Regional Legal Writing Conference. All participants must register; this includes presenters, too.

Our plenary speaker this year is Richard Neuman, who will be speaking on Attention Deficit Disorder, Dyslexia, and Legal Writing. Thanks to program chairs, Terry Pollman and Judy Stinson, we have a program full of outstanding presentations by experienced legal writing professionals. Take a look for yourself:
Today is the last day to book the group rate at the Windmill Inn. You still have until Feb. 22 to get the group rate at the Sheraton. For details on hotels, see:
