I have neglected to note that this year the Eastern District of Texas Bar Association (have I mentioned its fancy new website?) is partnering with not just the Federal Circuit Bar Association, but also the Center for American and International Law, from Plano, Texas, in putting on the bench/bar. We've had highly successful conferences in the past with the FCBA, and are looking forwarding to working with the CAIL as well. They have been involved in recent years, as attendees know.
Speaking of the Federal Circuit, the agenda includes four members of that court this year - Chief Judge Sharon Prost and Judges Timothy Dyk, Kathleen O'Malley and Kimberly Moore.
