Looking for a Legal Conference to Attend?….

Then perhaps you might want to check out the Legal Scholarship Blog , hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Washington.  This blog has information about hundreds of conferences and law school workshops since it started posting last August.

Not sure if this will be helpful to you?  Think again…
According to an e-mail from Mary Whisner, Reference Librarian from the Gallagher Law Library at Washington:
“Faculty can learn about conferences and calls for papers. They can also find out what their colleagues at other schools are talking about.  Law students can use it as a source for paper ideas. What are the hot topics in the legal academy?  Journal editors might even contact the people who are speaking at in-house workshops and colloquia about publishing their papers.”

And, if you know of an event or your journal/school/group is hosting one, please let the good folks at the Legal Scholarship Blog know — to do so, simply send your announcements to legalscholarshipblog@gmail.com
