#ThrowbackThursday: Criminal Law Conference 1988


So about today’s Throwback Thursday: our copy of the 1988 DCAO / CCLA Criminal Law Conference materials doesn’t have a conference program or agenda included. It’s a rather slim volume of materials, and it might actually be comprised entirely of re-prints of other articles and court filings. If we had a version of the agenda saved electronically from back then, we don’t anymore. So I went searching through our old newsletters, and at least found an advertisement for the conference. It’s not a very robust ad (our ad budget obviously extended as far as the paper for the dot matrix printer it came out of), but there’s a rather fascinating note in the guest speakers section:

 

 

So, did Dr. Henry Morgentaler speak at that conference? Anyone remember? That would be quite the get, and particularly in spring 1988!

This year’s Criminal Law Conference is taking place next weekend (October 13 and 14) at Château Montebello. Registration is open until October 9th – you can do that from the CCLA website.
