Other Conference Information

Conference Charges

  • Peggy Browing Fellows (i.e., law students who were chosen for PBF's 2017 Fellowship Program) - All fees are waived.  PBF will also cover transportation costs.
     
  • Other Students - We ask schools to support us by paying all costs for their students to attend.  If a school cannot do this, PBF will cover the Conference Fee and Overnight Fee for one student from that school (not counting Peggy Browning Fellows).  The student must still pay the Reigstration Fee.  There is also limited funding available for airfare.

    Registration Fee . . . . . . .  $25   Non-refundable; covers materials and processing. 
                                                          To reduce no-shows, we prefer that this fee be paid by the student, not by the school)

    Conference Fee . . . . . . . $250   Includes meals. Students attending only one day pay reduced rate of $125.

    Overnight Fee . . . . . . . . .$110   Per person, per night, double occupancy.

    Box Lunch. . . . . . . . . . .     $18   Optional, for early arrivals on Friday.
     
  • Please Note:  The actual cost per person is greater than the fees listed above; thus, PBF subsidizes every student to some extent.

Lodging

  • PBF will handle arrangements for overnight accommodations at the conference center.
  • Students may request a roommate; otherwise, one will be assigned.  These requests must be received by September 29, 2017.
  • Single rooms are available for $170 per night, paid in advance.
  • Plenty of free parking is available on campus.

Travel

  • If a school cannot cover airfare, the school may request travel assistance from PBF for one student (in addition to PBF Fellows).
  • When PBF covers airfare, usually PBF will make the flight arrangements for the student.
  • PBF purchases non-refundable tickets.  We will expect reimbursement from any student who cancels after we have purchased tickets.
  • The Maritime Conference Center provides free shuttle service from BWI Airport and BWI Amtrak station.
  • Arrangements can be made to arrive early or stay longer.  This gives students a chance to schedule job interviews or other activities while in the Baltimore-Washington area.

Cancellations & Substitutions

  • Cancellations received before 3:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time, September 29, 2017 will be eligible for refunds, except for the $25 registration fee and for any airline tickets already purchased by PBF.  Those received later will not be eligible for refunds.
  • Refunds will be processed six to eight weeks after the conference.
