Friends of Legal Writing Luncheon
On January 7, 2010
In New Orleans
R.S.V.P. by November 15, 2009!
An ad hoc group called the “Friends of Legal Writing” are organizing a special legal writing luncheon in New Orleans on Thursday, January 7, 2010, from noon to 1:30 p.m. You are invited to enjoy an authentic Cajun meal in a beautiful dining room that overlooks the city of New Orleans. This event is being held during the AALS annual meeting, but it is not an AALS event. It is a gathering of professors who teach legal writing, reasoning, and research—as well as their supporters. The luncheon will be held in New Orleans at the Plimsoll Club in the Galvez Room, located in the World Trade Center just next door to the AALS Conference Hotel. This will be a gathering to celebrate the continued growth of our discipline with friends, family, and colleagues.
Because this is not an AALS event, you must register and pay separately to attend. You must register and pay for the luncheon by November 15th in order to attend. Seating is limited, so don’t delay in responding.
The cost of the luncheon is $45. You may send a check to Rachel Croskery-Roberts at the University of Michigan Law School, 625 South State Street, 414 Hutchins Hall, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 48109-1215. Alternatively, you can make a credit card payment on PayPal by clicking here.
When you respond, please choose one of the following three entrées: (1) Chicken Lafitte (Crawfish-stuffed boneless chicken breast with brandy cream sauce); (2) Pecan-crusted Tilapia; or (3) Vegetable-stuffed eggplant with tomato basil sauce.
The PayPal site allows you to print a receipt immediately. You can also include your menu choice in the box that says “Instructions to Seller.” Please contact Rachel Croskery-Roberts at rcrosker [at] umich.edu if you have any questions about the event (or if you can’t decide between the Chicken Lafitte and the Pecan-Crusted Tilapia).
Joe Kimble, who was just announced as the winner of the AALS Section Award from the Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research, will make brief remarks at the Friends of Legal Writing Luncheon (which is just before the section's afternoon program). The award will be formally presented at the start of the section's expanded joint program (from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.) with the Section on Teaching Methods.
P.S. This lunchtime program is a good event to bring spouses, significant others, and even insignificant others. Just r.s.v.p. by November 15th.
