There is a vicious rumor going around school that registration for this is full and there is a waiting list. I just sent in my registration information but haven't gotten anything back via e-mail. I'm a little bothered by the fact that no one at school told the students about this. This is an excellent chance for all of us to hear major players in the legal world speak. And it's right down the street from the law school. If I am on a waiting list, I'm probably just going to go anyway. Hopefully, some people won't show up. I would love to attend this.

EDIT: I am on the waiting list. Many thanks to MULS for telling us about this in advance...
