Justice Sotomayor to speak in San Diego in October

The National Association of Women Judges will have its annual conference in San Diego October 15-19. SCOTUS Justice Sotomayor will give the keynote speech at the Gala Awards Banquet on October 18 and will also speak on "Access to Justice and Implicit Bias" (with 9th Circuit Judge McKeown) on October 19. Is that not enough of a draw? How about these names:
Brandeis University Professor Anita F. Hill and Harvard Law School Professor Charles G. Ogletree, Jr., will speak as keynotes at the plenary breakfast session Oct. 17, while Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California and former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is the keynote luncheon speaker that day. California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye is among those speaking at a session on “Election, Selection, and Retention of Judges: Challenges to Judicial Independence” on Oct. 18.
