AP-LS Annual Conference


The 2014 annual conference of the American Psychology-Law Society will be held at the New Orleans Sheraton, in New Orleans, on March 6-9, 2014. The conference will begin the morning of Thursday, March 6 and will run through Saturday, March 8, 2014.

The Sheraton New Orleans Hotel strongly discourages trying to arrive on Mardi Gras Day (Tuesday, March 4). It is nearly impossible to get to the hotel on Mardi Gras Day. The hotel is on the parade route so the street is blocked off. They cannot guarantee that conference attendees will be able to park at the hotel or anywhere nearby. You cannot get close to the hotel because it is on the parade route and there are barricades with New Orleans Police Officers. If attendees take a cab from the airport, they will be dropped off about 5-10 blocks away and the guest will have to make their way through the crowds to get to the hotel. If attendees must arrive on Mardi Gras Day, it is best to arrive after 4 p.m.: the parade will have passed the hotel by this time. The street closures start at 6 a.m.

There will be free internet in all guestrooms. There is a 10% discount on valet parking for those attending the conference.
