The Capital Area Legal Writing Conference Planning Committee is planning what seems to be a pretty great conference to be hosted at the George Washington University Law School on February 25 - 26, 2011. The conference will features 65 presenters from over 25 law schools in 20 States.
The registration deadline is fast approaching. The good news? Registration is free.
Dr. George D. Gopen, Professor of the Practice of Rhetoric at Duke University, and the 2011 recipient of the Legal Writing Institute’s Golden Pen Award, will deliver the Keynote Address. In addition, a plenary session will feature Professor Teresa Godwin Phelps of American University’s Washington College of Law, and winner of the 2009 Terri LeClercq Courage Award.
The deadline to register is January 15, 2011. There is no registration fee, and all attendees must register whether or not they are presenting at the conference. To register, please visit:http://capitallegalwriting.eventbrite.com/ The registration site contains information about reserving a room at a group rate at one of the conference hotels, within walking distance to GW Law. Space is limited, so please book your room now! If you have any questions, please contact the organizers at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
