The Second Annual International Students For Liberty Conference will be held at George Washington University (Washington, D.C.), from February 20-22, 2009. The conference has already received 100 applications from students in 13 countries, and will be accepting between 150-200 students. Bringing students together to hear about issues affecting liberty and discuss how to promote liberty on campus, this conference is sure to be one of the premiere events of the year for students dedicated to liberty.

At the inaugural, 2008 Students for Liberty Conference, three Cato people spoke: myself, Tom Palmer, and Randy Barnett. The speakers list for this year is still being compiled, but the Keynote Speaker will be Yon Goicoechea, recipient of the 2008 Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty for his work as a Venezuelan law student, leading the student movement for democracy and human rights in his country.
