We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2015 ALSB Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, August 6-10 at the Sheraton Society Hill. Expect great food, exciting events and a glimpse into America’s legal past at some of the most important historic sites in the country (just blocks from our hotel). The day-flow of the conference is a bit different: The main conference days are FRIDAY-SATURDAY-SUNDAY-MONDAY, with the banquet on Monday evening. You might want to come in on Thursday or an early flight Friday morning. And don’t forget to plan activities outside of the meeting! There are many city guides available to give you ideas.

The official site is at:  But the Travel Channel also has an excellent smartphone/tablet app (Travel Channel Cities) that provides recommendations from such hosts as Anthony Bourdain. Stay tuned for more details in the winter Newsletter and emails on ALSBNEWS! See you in Philly!
