2019 ACS Western Regional Convening
Please join us for the 2019 ACS Western Regional Convening, hosted by the ACS Colorado Lawyer Chapter and the ACS University of Denver Sturm College of Law Student Chapter.
This is an exciting opportunity to connect with judges, judicial clerks, scholars, lawyers, and law students. Come shape the debate, build networks, and inspire action. Topics will include impeachment, immigration, progressive prosecution, diversity and equality of opportunity, consumer financial protection, privacy and national security, the upcoming Supreme Court term, LGBTQIA rights, and fixing the courts.
Please be aware that General Admission tickets purchased after October 21, 2019 does not guarantee food for the convening.
There is a significant amount of construction going on around the University of Denver’s campus, and street parking options are limited. If you would like to reserve an on-site parking spot for either or both days, please ensure that you reserve both a "General Admission" ticket and a "Parking" ticket for every day you need parking. Reserved parking spots cost $10/day.
If you do not wish to purchase parking, there is metered parking available along Evans Avenue and University Boulevard and unmetered parking throughout the neighborhood that are a short walk from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.
