Emory's biennial conference on the teaching of transactional law and skills is postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis

The transactional skills conference originally scheduled for June 5-6 has not surprisingly been cancelled due to the covid crisis but the organizers tell me they plan to reschedule as soon as the coast is clear.  Here is the official announcement from conference coordinator Kelli Pittman:

We hope that all of you are safe and well.


Due to the uncertain length of the COVID-19 global pandemic, and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel the Transactional Law and Skills Education Conference currently scheduled for June 5-6, 2020.


We will re-schedule the Conference and revisit our theme – “Hindsight, Insight, and Foresight: Transactional Law and Skills Education in the 2020s” – when it is appropriate and safe to do so.


If you have already registered for the Conference, we will refund your money. If you have submitted a proposal or a nomination for the Tina L. Stark Award for Teaching Excellence, you will have the opportunity to resubmit your proposal or nomination when we establish the new Conference date.


If you have already reserved a room at the Emory Conference Center Hotel please call them at 800.933.6679 to cancel your reservation. For other Conference-related questions, please contact our Conference Coordinator, Kelli Pittman at


During this period of “social distancing,” we are proud to be members of a community of transactional law and skills educators dedicated to excellence. We look forward to re-scheduling the Conference and welcoming you back to Emory.

When we have more information about a rescheduled date, we'll let you know.

Stay safe everyone.
