Upcoming JAA American Inn of Court programs

In this week dominated by CAAF's Judicial Conference, it seems appropriate to talk about CLE. On 18 March, Chief Judge O'Toole of NMCCA will be speaking to the Judge Advocates Association American Inn of Court. His topic is "Trial Preparation by Reverse Engineering." Information should be available here. (In case that link isn't working, the program announcement is also posted here.)

On 8 April, the Deputy Judge Advocate General of the Army, Major General Daniel V. Wright, will be speaking to the Inn. His topic will be "Civility and Professionalism in the Courts."

Speaking of CLE, there's an ALI-ABA program coming up in Philly on 23 April that sounds interesting: Trials of the Century, featuring analysis of the O.J. case, the Scopes Monkey Trial, the Lindbergh kidnapping trial, Nuremberg, Clarence Darrow's L.A. Times bombing trial, and the Clinton impeachment.

I don't think I can justify taking the time away from work to go. On the other hand, I could train up and back in the same day and it is within walking distance of Morimoto--one of the Kabul Klipper's favorite restaurants . . . .

Stay home and watch the history channel. Reverse engineering, civility, trials of the century. Please, gag me. Where is OJ when we need him?

...and the anonymous snark has returned. (Glad to see the even snarkier comment about Reed didn't survive.)

Bitter much?
