Panels and speakers will include:

Equine Law panel
Wake County's Trap-Neuter-Return feral cat ordinance panel

There will be a vegan lunch (catered by Vimala's Curryblossom cafe) and light breakfast.

There are a limited number of spaces again, so please register in advance! Tickets are $5 for general admission and free for students (but students must register online also). Registration can be completed online here:

We hope to have another successful symposium:

We look forward to seeing you, and be sure to register soon before space runs out!

    Excellent! Such an incredible event that I'd been looking forward to for a long time. It was fantastic to interact with other participants, panelists, and lawyers/law students. Will Potter's talk was great, as were the other panels. Lunch was delicious; so were the vegan baked goods and Girl Scout Cookies! Thanks so much to the organizers for putting on such a successful symposium.
