On Friday, March 14th, here in New York at the Yale Club, Above the Law is putting on a lawyer blog conference, running from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
More information including the agenda and registration details are here, but a few of the highlights are:
- welcoming remarks by Floyd Abrams of Cahill Gordon
- a panel on free speech online moderated by David Lat and featuring among others Tim Wu of Columbia Law School, one of the truly deep thinkers about networks, monopoly, free speech, and the dynamics of public communication forums in general
- a panel on the "dark side" of the ‘net including trolls, racism, sexism, and other "Generally Regarded As Odious" practices (my coinage, not ATL’s), and
- a panel on blogs as change agents, featuring among others Kyle McEntee of the Law School Transparency project.
I’ll be attending and hope to see you there as well.
