december 6: workshop or conference. was there a conference or workshop you attended that was especially beneficial? where was it? what did you learn?
more intellectual stimulation than i’ve ever been faced with; i was surrounded by sheer brilliance all weekend. saw yale’s gorgeous campus. made wonderful new friends. met then-judge sotomayor [at the time she was a 2nd circuit judge and rumored to be on a list for SCOTUS. we all know what happened there]. met john bolton! i can’t even list all of the brilliant and fascinating people who were there. everything about it was fantastic. i’m very much looking forward to 2010’s symposium at penn.
the organization is spectacular and i cannot imagine a better way to spend a february weekend. if you have a chance – GO. get involved with fed soc, it is a superb organization of which i cannot speak highly enough.
