At least two regional conferences for legal writing professionals are on the horizon . . .
The first is the Lone Star Regional Legal Research and Writing Conference, scheduled for May 29-30, 2009, in Texas. Nancy Soonpaa (yes, our own Nancy Soonpaa) asks that anyone who plans to attend--or who is leaning in that direction--send her an e-mail so that conference organizers can develop a rough estimate of attendance.
And just a little farther out, it's the 2009 Central States Regional LRW/Lawyering Skills Conference, "Climate Change: Alternative Sources of Energy in Legal Writing," will be held on October 9-10 at Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Central States is also planning a Scholars’ Forum, which will be held on October 9 in conjunction with the conference. At the end of the Scholars’ Forum and just before the welcome reception for the conference, conference attendees will be able to participate in an hour-long discussion on getting published and giving effective presentations.
