With Joan, left to right, are Susan Sullivan, outgoing LLNE Education Director; Michael Hughes, incoming LLNE President; and Darcy Kirk, outgoing LLNE President.

Charles Papirmeister (left) and Christine Ryan (right) of Vermont Law School accept the award for Excellence in Marketing with their humorous and deftly instructional video The Legal Research Project, which lampooned the horror film The Blair Witch Project. AALL President Barbara Bintliff (center) presented the award.



Outgoing LLNE President Darcy Kirk (right) presents a commemorative duck to incoming President Michael Hughes. The duck was the theme of the hotel where the luncheon was held and where many attendees stayed while at the convention. Darcy thought it made a good symbol of leadership to be passed down.

Tracy Thompson (right) presents Ken Svengalis (center) with a lifetime achievement award as Darcy Kirk (left) looks on.

In a scene he described as the "Half Monty," incoming President Michael Hughes took "some of it" off to enthusiastically endorse the venue for next year's convention.
