(Reposted at the front of the blog for deadline day)
From Danielle Hart via the AALS Contracts Listserv:
The 12th International Conference on Contracts is just around the corner and the substantive content of the conference is starting to take shape nicely. Here are some highlights so far:
- Seana Shiffrin, Professor of Philosophy and Pete Kameron Professor of Law and Social Justice at UCLA, will be giving a keynote address currently entitled, “Enhancing Moral Relationships Through Strict Liability”
- A panel of O’Melveny & Myers attorneys will give the second keynote address currently entitled, “Drafting Complex Contracts: Behind the Scenes of the LaGuardia Project”
- There is a sizeable contingent of international contracts scholars joining us in February including, but certainly not limited to:
Mindy Chen-Wishart, the Associate Dean of Taught Graduate Studies at Oxford Law Faculty who also holds a fractional Professorship at the National University of Singapore and a Visiting Professorship at Hong Kong University, and
Eyal Zamir, Augusto Levi Professor of Commercial Law, Hebrew University of Jerusalem Faculty of Law.
- And, of course, there are already some great panels to look forward to that run the gamut from behavioral law and economics to intimate contracts and commodification.
So if you have not done so already, we would like to encourage you to please take advantage of the early bird registration deadline—December 15th (www.swlaw.edu/kconxii)—and to reserve a room at the Omni at your earliest convenience:
Guests may also confirm their reservation at the negotiated rate by calling 1.800.THE.OMNI (843-6664) and referencing the “KCON Conf Southwestern Law School” guestroom block.
