My dear colleagues and Court Review readers, greetings

I want to begin by highlighting our outstanding midyear conference in Memphis. It included an excellent minority community outreach event at the law school attended by three separate high schools, a well-attended group tour of the powerfully moving National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Hotel, a welcoming address from a Supreme Court Justice, an outstanding day of educational programs, and a fabulous evening barbecue event at Albert’s on Beale Street. Justice Torres and Judge Betty Moore planned the conference, but Justice Torres and I agree Judge Moore, the conference chair, deserves huge kudos for it. She found our wonderful venue right across from Graceland, organized the outreach event and educational programs, introduced the speakers, planned the barbecue, and got so many sponsorships that the conference made a significant profit. Thank you again, Judge Moore!
