You Are Cordially Invited to the Larry Ribstein Memorial Symposium, Oct. 17-18, 2013 at the University of Illinois College of Law
Posted by Christine Hurt

You know how you get all those emails "inviting" you to a conference that takes place across the country tomorrow?  Or yesterday?  You weren't really invited.  You were "noticed."  This is not that kind of invitation.

As most readers know, my dear colleague, friend, and "friend of the Glom" Larry Ribstein passed away in December 2011.  The University of Illinois College of Law has spent the better part of the last year designing an academic symposium composed of papers building on his huge and varied scholarly legacy.  These papers will be published in our law review.  We hope that many, many of his friends, colleagues, blog readers and fans will come to Champaign to continue exploring the ideas and themes he dedicated his career pursuing.

The information on the symposium is here.  If you are coming, feel free to email me (achurt@illinois.edu) or Carolyn Turner (carolynt@illinois.edu) to get registered and get a password for the papers.  I would love to see you, and we will treat you like an invited guest, not an interloper with a mass email "invite."  Champaign is a couple/few hours away from notable urban centers with many law schools.  If you decide to drive down and spend the night, know that the fanciest hotels in town are pretty cheap!
