Conference on Critical Race Theory
Please see the conference website for the schedule and further information.
On April 16 - 17, 2009, the Yale Law School will host a conference entitled Frontiers in Social Justice Lawyering: Critical Race Revisited. Registration is free and open to the public; please see the conference website for the full schedule of events.
This conference will examine the insights of critical race theory for legal practice and social justice advocacy. Panelists will discuss the state of critical race studies today and, using immigration law as a case study, will explore the implications of critical race theory for emergent issues of race and racism in the law.
Twelve years ago, the Yale Law School hosted a seminal conference to explore the contributions and frontiers of critical race theory. This April, YLS brings together important voices in critical race theory, immigration law and clinical education to explore critical race as a framework for training lawyers to address questions of race, identity and community in their legal practice.
