Section of Litigation Annual Conference 2006

The ABA Section of Litigation Annual Conference 2006 is coming up next month -- April 19-22, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in LA. One option this year is a "trial track" where participants follow one case through the litigation process all the way to appeal.

In addition to solid content, the conference has some star power. It starts off with a talk by Dr. Phil McGraw. (Dr. Phil, the founder of Courtroom Sciences, Inc., was a highly sought-after trial consultant before his TV fame as troubleshooting psychologist. In fact, he got his start in TV after being a consultant to Oprah Winfrey when she was sued by a group of cattle ranchers for "defaming" beef. See short bio.)

Anyone infected by March Madness? John Wooden, legendary UCLA coach, will speak on "Success, Preparation and Ethics—How to Win without Losing Yourself."

Law students: this is a tremendous bargain (if you can get yourselves to LA). Online student registration is only $10!
