ASLH 2017

[We have the following announcement.]  Registration is now open for the American Society for Legal History Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, October 26-29, 2017.

The primary hotel is the Red Rock Casino Resort, but a block of sleeping rooms is also available at conference rates at Boulder Station, a recently-unionized, less expensive property. The Friday afternoon and evening program, including panels, the plenary address, and the plenary reception, will take place on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. (UNLV will provide bus transportation between Red Rock and campus.) Friday morning and Saturday sessions will be at Red Rock. As part of the Friday afternoon program, there will be a special pre-plenary panel on “Unionization Strategies in Challenging Times,” with the participation of Richard McCracken, general counsel of Unite Here, the parent union for the Culinary Workers Union, which is currently campaigning for recognition as the bargaining agent for non-gaming workers at Red Rock Casino Resort.
