The annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools just finished in San Diego. It was the first time that the AALS met there, and from all accounts I've heard it was a tremendously popular and successful location. Fantastic weather, great views, a calm and relaxed atmosphere, well-attended sessions (most especially for the AALS Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research), and a fantastic Golden Pen and Blackwell Award at the Children's Museum, where we launched the 25th anniversary (and held the first LWI pillow fight in the mattress room). (That's all I'm going to say about it now, and I'll deny in advance that it is me in any of the photos). The Mercer pre-conference seminar was also very well attended and thoroughly enjoyable. Next year? New Orleans!
