DTCI-SchultzThe 2012 DRI Annual Meeting will return to the Crescent City – New Orleans, La., – Oct. 24-28. For those of you who have had the pleasure of attending prior annual meetings in New Orleans, you will understand what a great time is in store for all attendees.

This year’s annual meeting will take place at the New Orleans Marriott, which is a beautiful hotel located just a few steps off the French Quarter. This year’s meeting will kick off on Thursday with a point-counterpoint discussion of the political landscape by Karen Hughes and Dee Dee Myers, who served in the administrations of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton respectively. The DRI Awards Luncheon speaker is Roy Blount Jr., a southern humorist and panelist on National Public Radio’s “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me.” Friday’s keynote speaker is internationally acclaimed author Niall Ferguson, one of the world’s leading historians of the global economy. His latest book, “Civilization: The West and the Rest,” is already an international best seller.

Other notable speakers on the program are Terri Morrison, author of “Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands,” presenting on Thursday; and Paul Sullivan, author of “Clutch,” and Shankar Vedantam, author of “The Hidden Brain,” presenting on Saturday. In addition, attendees can earn up to 12.25 hours of CLE credit, including cutting-edge programs from our substantive law and practice area committees.

In typical DRI fashion, a number of wonderful social activities have been planned. Beginning on Wednesday, a reception will be held for new and prospective members followed by the Welcome Reception – New Orleans style. On Thursday, spend the evening at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which will include on-field competitions with plenty of food, beverages and music. Another networking reception will be held on Friday conducted by the DRI Diversity Committee. The week’s social activities will be capped off on Saturday night at the Presidential Gala and installation ceremony, which will include a silent auction of many fabulous items.

In addition to all of these activities, the wonderful fun and atmosphere of New Orleans will be at your doorstep. From Bourbon Street to the Garden District, New Orleans is a great destination.

If you have been considering a DRI annual meeting, now is the time to attend. Register before Sept. 26, 2012, and save $200 off the registration price. For registration and hotel materials, log on to www.DRI.org.•

  1. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  2. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  3. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  4. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?

  5. Once again Indiana has not only shown what little respect it has for animals, but how little respect it has for the welfare of the citizens of the state. Dumping manure in a pond will most certainly pollute the environment and ground water. Who thought of this spiffy plan? No doubt the livestock industry. So all the citizens of Indiana have to suffer pollution for the gain of a few livestock producers who are only concerned about their own profits at the expense of everyone else who lives in this State. Shame on the Environmental Rules Board!
