Mark your calendars now for the Thirteenth Annual Education Law Symposium to be held at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky from July 7-10, 2016.

Co-sponsored by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and the Education Law Institute at St. Catharine College, St. Catharine, Kentucky, this year's program offers presentations on the law as it applies to Catholic education and ministry.                

All sessions will be held in the Brown Hotel—rated as one of the top 50 hotels in the country. Participants must make their own reservations at the hotel by calling 888-888-5252. Indicate that you are with the Education Law Institute/NCEA Law Symposium and you will pay the special rate of $105 (single) and $119 (double), which includes a full hot breakfast daily. Hotel reservations at this special symposium rate cannot be guaranteed after June 5, 2016. After that date, please contact Mrs. Brussell directly..               

Meeting rooms tend to be cool. Please bring a jacket or sweater. Dress for the symposium is business casual. We suggest more formal attire for the closing liturgy and dinner on Saturday evening.
