The theme of The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies2007 National Lawyers Convention in Washington, D.C., in mid-November will be "Shining City Upon a Hill:  American Exceptionalism."  The convention will feature four showcase panels and 13 practice-group breakout sessions, each with noted legal experts and scholars from across the political spectrum. 

The convention will also present the Seventh Annual Barbara K. Olsen Memorial Lecture, to be delivered by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.  Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will also address the conventiongoers.

The showcase panels will address whether America has a special mission, whether she is different from other major Western democracies, the citation of foreign law by U.S. courts, and the war on terror and the rule of law in the Islamic world.

Breakout-session topics include:  immigration, amnesty, and the rule of law; the independence of federal prosecutors; international labor standards and American values; and the regulatory state and U.S. technology.

Registration for the convention is available online.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports the Federalist Society, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
