Law School Consumer Clinic Conference

Santa Fe, New Mexico

May 15-16, 2024

We are excited to let you know that the biennial Law School Consumer Clinic Conference (LSCCC) will be held on May 15-16, 2024 in Santa Fe, New Mexico at the Drury Hotel, just prior to the Teaching Consumer Law Conference. The conference will begin in the late afternoon on Wednesday, May 15, and continue with a full day of workshops on Thursday, May 16.

The Consumer Clinic Conference is a participatory convening where participants can share their experiences selecting and supervising clinic cases, teaching clinic seminars, working on consumer law policy, developing teaching materials, etc. A primary goal is to foster community across the nation’s consumer law clinics. It is a chance to get to know your colleagues better and to develop your skills as a clinical teacher in this complex and growing field. It’s also a lot of fun. Full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, and aspiring teachers — all are welcome. 

We encourage any of you who teach consumer law (or a related area) to stay on for the biennial Teaching Consumer Law Conference, which will be held in Santa Fe, at the same hotel, on the two days following the Clinic Conference, May 17-18, 2024. Package deal! (Please note there is a separate registration form for the Teaching Consumer Law Conference.)

Getting to Santa Fe

If you are flying directly into Santa Fe (SAF), it is less than a 30-minute drive to the hotel. You can rent a car or take an Uber/Lyft or cab. If you are flying into Albuquerque (ABQ), which has many more flights and airlines, it is a little over an hour to the hotel. If you do not rent a car from ABQ, one of the shuttle services may be a better option than Uber/Lyft. Groome Transportation(link is external) offers regular shuttles and can arrange for drop off directly at the hotel. Be sure to book your reservation to the Drury.We recommend checking the schedule and booking in advance.


If you require an accommodation for effective communication or information about mobility access features in order to fully participate in this event, please contact Ben Hiebert (ben.hiebert@law.berkeley.edu) with as much advance notice as possible and at least 7-10 days in advance of the event.
