Later this week the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) holds its annual meeting in Washington, DC (more details here). There are some terrific regulation-related panels at AALS this year, but preregistration is required and the attendance cost is pretty significant.
This weekend the Federalist Society will be hosting its annual faculty conference right across the street (at the Omni Shoreham). Preregistration is required, but uUnlike AALS the Federalist Society conference is free for professors as well as aspiring professors. You view the whole schedule and register here. [UPDATE: While preregistration would be helpful for planning purposes, the Federalist Society has informed me that it’s not at all required.]
The Federalist Society’s annual faculty conference is in its seventeenth year, and this year’s schedule is packed with administrative law and regulation topics from the nation’s leading experts. Here are some of the adlaw/reg highlights:
