2014 Annual Meeting

2014 Denver, November 6-9


Please note that the Opening Reception will take place in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals at the Bryon White U.S. Courthouse on 1823 Stout Street on Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.  Please arrange your travel plans accordingly.


For the first time in its history, the Society will be hosting its annual meeting in Denver. As one member put it: “We move from sea-level Miami to the Mile High City.”  The 2014 ASLH Preliminary Program is now available.

The conference hotel is the Four Seasons Denver, Frommer’s number one hotel in the city, for which we have negotiated the remarkably cheap conference rate of $155 a night. The hotel is located in the city’s Theatre District and features clear views of Rockies. Tom Romero of the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver is chair of the Local Arrangements Committee and is already at work planning events for us. After you register for the meeting, you will receive a confirmation email that contains links to book your hotel room at either our host hotel or backup hotel.  Further information will be available on this page as it comes available.


United Airlines is the official airlines of the meeting, and is offering discounts to meeting attendees.  Flights via Air Canada (“AC”), Austrian Airlines (“OS”), Tyrolean Airways (VO), Brussels Airlines N.C. (“SN”), Lufthansa German Airlines (“LH”), Swiss International Air Lines LTD (“LX”) and United codeshare flights operated by All Nippon Airways (“NH”) are also included.
