From Professor Wanda Temm:
Have you registered yet? It's almost here. The Central Region LRW/Lawyering Skills Conference will be held October 5-6, 2007, at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. Registration is free!!!! All you will have are your travel expenses.
Our program committee, headed by Alison Julien of Marquette, has done a great job of organizing an outstanding program for our conference. Our plenary speaker will be the Honorable Duane Benton of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, a dedicated proponent of legal writing.
You can register online at http://www.law.umkc.edu/writing.htm.
Our conference hotel is the Embassy Suites on the Country Club Plaza, just north of the law school. Be sure to ask for the Central Legal Writing Conference rate. Our block of hotel rooms will be freed up on September 5th. If you have any trouble with your hotel reservations, please let me know right away. We will be providing shuttle service from the hotel to the law school thanks to Aspen. Our reception and lunch will be hosted by LexisNexis and Westlaw. Just a reminder that presenters need to register, too. That way we'll be able to have the right count for meals/breaks.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Kansas City in October.
