List Colleagues:

Lou Ann Blake, the NFB's Jacobus tenBroek Law Symposium coordinator, has
asked that I post the following announcement about the 2010 expanded
event here. We do seem able to attract a high caliber of participants to
this event, which seems to have become an annual affair within the legal
disability community. She urges as many as are able and inclined from
this list to make plans to participate in this function during the
spring. The announcement is pasted below in the text of this message and
is also attached for your reference and for further distribution. Thank
you. The announcement follows:
