Prof. Louis Michael Seidman - Georgetown University

Prof. Geoffrey Stone - University of Chicago Law School

Prof. Amy Wax - University of Pennsylvania Law School
I'm very excited to hear Judge Pryor's keynote address about his time as Alabama's attorney general. Apparently, he will be discussing his role in the Ten Commandments monument issue there. It's always nice to hear Judge Sykes speak. I'm sure she will represent the Seventh Circuit and MULS well as usual. I'm also looking forward to seeing Volokh Conspirators Prof. Kerr and Prof. Barnett in action. Part of me is also interested to see Prof. Geoff Stone. Stone and I are polar opposites ideologically speaking. Still, he's a good advocate for his positions, even when they are completely wrong.

The program looks very interesting, and I look forward to attending. A weekend in Chicago isn't bad either.
