Every year the National Conference of Law Reviews (NCLR) brings together the management of student run law journals from law schools across the country. NCLR is a great opportunity for editors from different journals to exchange ideas and learn how to more effectively run a student publication.
A different law school hosts NLCR each year, and Thomas Jefferson School of Law is honored to host the Conference in 2011. The 2011 NCLR will be held March 30 - April 2.
Attendees may stay at the Hard Rock hotel in Downtown San Diego, where part of the Conference is scheduled. The remainder of the Conference will take place at Thomas Jefferson's brand new state of the art campus (which opened in January of 2011), located about five city blocks from the Hard Rock Hotel.
Conference tickets are $375.00 each for exhibitors and attendees.
