Something Special for Anyone Teaching or Interested in Teaching Consumer Law. If you are currently teaching or want to teach consumer law, the Center for Consumer Law at the University of Houston Law Center has a Conference just for you. On May 23 and 24th, more than 30 experts from around the world will discuss issues of importance to any consumer law professor. The fourth such conference, entitled “Teaching Consumer Law - The Who, What, Where, Why, When and How,” will look at issues such as: what materials should be used; alternative methods of teaching; new developments in consumer law; innovative ways to look at traditional consumer problems; global approaches to consumer regulation; and how consumers can collect attorneys’ fees. On Saturday, a special session will be held exclusively for those who are interested in getting that first teaching position, either full-time or as an adjunct. The Houston Astros baseball will also be in town and all Conference participants are invited to see them play the Philadelphia Phillies.
