You have to go to the WestLegalEdCenter website and search “Dowd” (enter doesn’t work to search on their site, fyi, you have to click the search button) to find the conference. If you aren’t a member, it’s $195. If you are, it’s free. If you haven’t used WestLegalEdCenter, it’s well worth the annual membership fee. Check through your state bar to see if they have a special deal; one of mine offers membership for $400 versus their standard rate of around $800. Even at $800, it’s a steal.
