Section Notes

Seattle Midyear Meeting

The ABA’s Midyear Meeting took place in Seattle, Washington, from February 5–11, 2003. The weather was unseasonably clear, and good coffee abounded. (Seattle may have more coffee houses per capita than any other major city in the country.) Lots of interesting people, useful CLE, good meetings, good food, and a good time had by all (or at least all that we know about). If you missed it, too bad. Don’t miss the next meeting.
