The US government will not require a passport until January 2007 for US citizens crossing the Canadian border by plane or boat, and January 2008 if crossing by automobile. These dates do not affect the annual meeting for this year. So, if you do not have a passport, you may provide photo identification, along with a copy of a birth certificate, to enter Canada.

The Annual Meeting and Educational Conference will be held May 31–June 3 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto, Ontario. The conference begins on Wednesday with a reception and dinner. It will conclude Saturday with a special evening of dinner and entertainment, with departure on Sunday.

Toronto is a vibrant, bustling, cosmopolitan city with fabulous restaurants, museums, historical sites, shopping, and parks. The Royal York is an elegant hotel, built in the era when railroad companies created beautiful places to stay in favorite travel destinations (Queen Elizabeth stays at the hotel when she visits Toronto). The hotel offers access to transportation that brings Toronto to your doorstep. Whether it is spending time at the Royal Ontario Museum, shopping at Eaton Center, or walking along the shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto offers something for everyone.

Registration must be completed by Monday, April 24; a late fee of $50 will be applied to registrations received after that date. Payment need not accompany your registration, but must be paid to LSAC prior to or at the conference. Two representatives from each law school may attend for a per-person registration fee of $425, which covers transportation and meal costs. Additional representatives may attend for the same $425 registration fee, but must pay all of their own transportation costs. All participants must pay their own hotel expenses. Law schools are encouraged to send the chair or a member of the admission committee as one of their two representatives. Register online by clicking here.
