FAQs - Annual Meeting

What if I have technical difficulties during my session?

Each session is assigned a law student monitor who is there to troubleshoot most technical problems and is available to seek hotel assistance for any setup, sound, and heating/cooling issues. If you encounter technical difficulties, first ask your student monitor, and send them for expert assistance if needed.

Where can I prepare onsite before my session?
