Connecting the Threads II - Laboring on Labor Day
Like many in the law academy, I find three-day holiday weekends a great time to catch my breath and catch up on work items that need to be addressed. This Labor Day weekend--including today, Labor Day itself--is no exception to the rule. I am working today, honoring workers through my own work. My husband and daughter are doing the same.
This blog post and the announcement it carries are among my more joyful tasks for the day. I have been remiss in not earlier announcing and promoting our second annual Business Law Prof Blog symposium, which will be held at The University of Tennessee College of Law on September 14. The symposium again focuses on the work of many of your favorite Business Law Prof Blog editors, with commentary from my UT Law faculty colleagues and students. This year, topics range from the human rights and other compliance implications of blockchain technology to designing impactful corporate law, with a sprinkling of other entity and securities law related topics. I am focusing my time in the spotlight (!) on professional challenges in the representation of social enterprise firms. More information about the symposium is available here. For those of you who have law licenses in Tennessee, CLE credits are available.
I am looking forward to again hosting some of my favorite law scholars at this symposium. I am sure some will blog about their presentations here (Marcia already has previewed her talk and summarized all of our presentations, and I plan to later blog about mine), Transactions (our business law journal) will publish the symposium proceedings, and videos will be processed and posted on UT Law's CLE website later in the year. But if you are in the neighborhood, stop by and hear us all in person! We would love to see you.
