The 2020 Third Circuit Judicial Conference will be May 13–15 in Philadelphia, and registration is now open. A direct link to the conference page, with an agenda, lodging info, and registration page, and more is here
Should you attend? If you practice in the Third Circuit, then yes, absolutely. It’s simply unbeatable for meeting members of the Third Circuit community, from judges all the way down to lawyers. My first Third Circuit conference I barely knew anyone, and the last one I had joined the Third Circuit Bar Association and knew lots of folks, and both times it was terrific.
And the CLE programming is first-rate and worth attending for all by itself. A few highlights of this year’s program include:
- Judicial Independence and the Rule of Law, including Judge Scirica;
- The Crisis of Wellness in the Legal Profession, including Judge Krause;
- Rules: What’s on the Horizon, including Judges Ambro, Chagares, and Jordan; and
- Media and Judicial Independence, including Judge Bibas along with Tom Goldstein, Linda Greenhouse, and Eugene Volokh.
Discounted early registration is $450 through February. On March 1 it goes up to $500, and after April 28 its $550.
So, tarry not! Register now, and we’ll see you in May.
