West Coast Law & Society Retreat

The West Coast Law and Society Retreat is coming up in February at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.  These kinds of events are especially good for graduate students and new faculty.  It should be small, and you should be able to get to know folks in the field.  Registration is not required, however if you plan to attend, let Art McEvoy know via email so that Southwestern knows how many to expect.  Here's the line-up:
