The Volokh Conspiracy
Mostly law professors | Sometimes contrarian | Often libertarian | Always independent
For readers who may be interested, here is my schedule of speaking engagements over the next three months. All of these events are open to the public, unless otherwise noted. If you can attend one or more of these events, please come up and introduce yourself. I am always happy to meet Volokh Conspiracy readers!

UPDATE: In the original version of this post, I accidentally indicated that my October 13 talk was at the University of Denver rather than the University of Colorado, where it actually will be. I apologize for the mistake, which has now been corrected.
