The 2015 American Bar Association LLC Institute will be held November 12-13 in Arlington, Virginia. I’m speaking this year (on LLC dissolution with Carter Bishop and Doug Moll and on a panel hashing out issues at the intersection of LLC [operating] agreements and contract law), and have attended/spoken at several earlier Institutes. The complete program is available on Tom Rutledge’s blog.
If you would like to attend this year and need information on how to get registered, you can reach out to Tom (Thomas.firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will get you whatever you need. Tom is very user-friendly and an amazing colleague, if you haven't yet met him. He is particularly adept (among his many talents) at bringing the law academy and the law practice community together in productive ways. The LLC Institute is a great example.
Also, if you are working on issues relating to LLC law or are considering wading into those waters, be thinking about program ideas for future Institutes. Planning for the 2016 LLC Institute already is underway. Many of the sessions at the Institute focus or are based on the scholarship of law academics on LLCs and other unincorporated business associations. For example, at the 2014 LLC Institute, programs centered on articles written by our business law colleagues Benjamin Means and Colin Marks. The LLC Institute is a great environment (comprising academics and high-level, focused practitioners) in which to exchange ideas. I highly recommend it.
