Hmm..question Sands.  How do you register and how much?  I could really use one of the workshops geared toward 1Ls (exam-taking - I haven't mastered the art completely.)

It is totally FREE of charge.  There will be a registration coming up soon either on line or through chapter presidents merely for head-count purposes but there is no cost.  Just show up and learn. ;D

I shut down the law school library today for a second consecutive evening.  I can't believe I'm closing out the library.

Definitely not the bus trip part since you jokers are hosting the region.  :D

We're trying to provide food for everybody so we want to get a good headcount. So I guess the answer for you cats at Harvard would be no you don't really need to but it would help us plan ahead if you're planning on staying for lunch and/or the social event afterwards.
