LWI Conference Preview - Tuesday Dinner for New Members

Ruth_anne_robbinsTuesday evening features "New Member Dinners," starting at 5:30 p.m.  This is when more experienced LWI members take new members out to dinner so that the new members can feel more personally welcomed into the legal writing community.

Ruth Anne Robbins, the next president of the Legal Writing Institute, tells me that these New Member Dinners have have been in place since 2004, when Tracy McGaugh started this wonderful tradition.

There will be sign-up sheets for these dinners, so don't worry about that now.  The dinners should all finish by 8:00 so that people can get to the Popcorn Sessions that begin at 8:00 p.m. at the hotel. 

Hat tip to Ruth Anne Robbins, President-Elect of the Legal Writing Institute.

Thanks to Ruth Anne and Mark for letting everyone know about these dinner events. As a host, however, I feel the need to clear up any possible misconception caused by Mark's use of "take out." While my colleagues on the LWI New Member Committee and I are looking forward to meeting and dining with new members, I'm afraid we can't offer to pay for the dinners as well.

See you in Indianapolis,
