The purpose of our Annual Conference is to provide an opportunity for those interested in the Society to share ideas and scholarship with each other. We will host a number of panel discussions on topics ranging from Presidential powers to immigration. This will provide a forum for discussion and allow the presenters to obtain feedback on their scholarship.
