A few of the exciting conferences scheduled for the remainder of March include:
SALT (Society of American Law Teachers) Conference, "Vulnerable Populations and Economic Realities: an interdisciplinary approach to law teaching" on March 19-20, 2010 at Golden Gate University. Gilbert Paul Carrasco, Willamette University School of Law (pictured left) and Michelle Wilde Anderson, (pictured right) Berkeley Law, University of California will be speaking on "Teaching the Frontier: Class Issues in Constitutional Law and Spatial Discrimination." A few of my CUNY colleagues will also be speaking. Registration and program information here.
Fordham Law (NYC) will sponsor the Fourth Law and Information Society Symposium with the topic "Hate Versus Democracy on the Internet" on March 26, 2010. The program is a good mix of law professors and practitioners. Of special interest to ConLawProfs teaching first amendment courses is the late morning panel, "Distinguishing Hate Speech from Legitimate Political Expression on the Internet." The panel is moderated by Ann Bartow, University of South Carolina (and Feminist Law Professors Blog), and features David E. Bernstein of George Mason, Steven J. Heyman of Chicago-Kent, and Kenneth Lasson of U Baltimore, as well as Nicole Wong of Google, Inc. Registration and program information here.
The Graduate Center of the City University of New York will be hosting "All in the Family?: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Kinship & Community" on March 25–26, 2010. This conference should be of interest to those ConLawProfs working at the intersection of constitutional law, family law, and law and literature. The final performance will include a poetry reading by Kimiko Hahn (conversant in "Translating Equality") and a performance by myself interweaving constitutional law doctrine, theory, and colonialism. Preliminary program available here.
