Legal conferences for law faculty resource blog from UW Law School

Mary Whisner, assistant librarian for reference services at the Gallagher Law Library of the University of Washington here in Seattle, appears to be the driving force for the Legal Conference Watch Blog tracking conferences of interest to law faculty members (and others in the field).

Legal Conference Blog University of Washington Law SchoolThe plan is not to include continuing legal education programs or local bar association meetings. The blog was started in response to a faculty request for help learning about upcoming conferences. “Attending and, if possible, presenting papers at conferences is a great way to develop ideas and make connections, so offering this service is a good complement to the other ways our library supports faculty scholarship.”

If you’re hosting or know about an upcoming conference that would interest law school faculty, Mary asks that you email her (whisner [at] u [dot] washington [dot] edu) a link or some basic information.

Update: Mary Whisner just emailed me that the very same week that she started Legal Conference Watch, a team at the University of Pittsburgh started Legal Scholarship Blog.

Instead of duplicating effort, they’ve decided to collaborate. Mary has been copying her postings into their blog and they’ll just have one.

Mary will soon announce on Legal Conference Watch that it won’t be updated and that readers should go to Legal Scholarship Blog.

Hat tip to Michel-Adrien Sheppard for word on Legal Conference Watch.
