Join us at the 69th Annual Conference

Reno-Tahoe, October 25-28, 2023

Our annual conference presents scholarship, interdisciplinary dialogue, and opportunities for networking for diverse scholars and legal and educational practitioners. It’s an extraordinarily welcoming conference, with the richness of programming that this unique diversity makes possible.

Wednesday, October 25, 2023

Our annual conference will take place in Reno, Nevada, known as "The Biggest Little City in the World." Nestled in the Sierras of Northern Nevada, Reno's thriving midtown and riverwalk offers an eclectic array of dining and nightlife. Join us on October 25 for pre-conference events, board of directors meetings, and a welcome reception for all attendees.

Join us for breakfast and roundtable discussions to hear colleagues present their recent research. Continue attending paper sessions and celebrate emerging leaders as they share their posters.

While exploring the vibrant nightlife, look for regional celebrations of Nevada Day, the state holiday commemorating when Nevada became the 36th state to join the Union and the second to join during the Civil War.

Saturday, October 28, 2023

Start the morning with the annual awards ceremony, honoring our most esteemed emerging and established leaders in education law. We'll conclude the conference with a vibrant debate of recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions.

Then join us for a scenic ride up the Sierras to have lunch at Lake Tahoe. As Mark Twain said, "To breathe the same air as the angels, you must go to Tahoe."
