Glad to see this is continuing. I attended the inaugural conference at Marquette in Milwaukee last September and had a great experience:
Chapman University School of Law will be hosting the 2nd Annual Local Government Law Works-in-Progress Conference on Friday, October 25, 2013 and Saturday, October 26, 2013. A formal call for papers will follow during the summer. Registration will take place in late August or early September, and the deadline for papers and abstracts will be in late September or early October. The conference will provide an opportunity for local government law scholars to present works-in-progress and receive feedback from colleagues. Questions should be directed to Kenneth Stahl at email@example.com.
I hope I can make it to beautiful Orange, Cal., in late October and you can too! (FYI, for those with small children, it’s very close to Disneyland.)
