Two symposia, one hosted by the Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights, the other by the Virginia Law Review, will begin on March 28.
First, from the Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights website:
TJCLCR is partnering with the William Wayne Justice Center and The University of Texas School of Law's Civil Rights Clinic to present a conference that will examine the law as a tool to close the educational achievement gap, with a special focus on Texas. Closing the achievement gap requires a multi-faceted approach that addresses issues at the community, school, and policy levels. Aimed at education reformers, lawyers, educators, policy makers, scholars, and students, this conference will explore ongoing law-related efforts to close the achievement gap as well as possible future initiatives.

The Virginia Law Review will celebrate its 100th year with a symposium discussing "four of the most influential and thought provoking articles published in the Virginia Law Review." The four articles scheduled to be discussed are:
