Gonzaga University School of Law

Friday-Saturday, September 23-24, 2011
Sponsored by:
Gonzaga University School of Law
The Task Force on Race and the Criminal Justice System

deadline for submission of proposals June 6, 2011

 

Gonzaga law From the conference organizers:  "This conference seeks to examine the topic of race and the criminal justice system in the Western states. Racial minorities continue to be overrepresented in our criminal justice system; yet too often concerns about the high arrest and incarceration rates are dismissed as simply the result of a high rate of criminality. This conference will explore the role of bias, both conscious and unconscious, to ask whether race still matters in our criminal justice system. While the emphasis will be on the West, we welcome papers and presentations focusing on other areas of the country, particularly ones that engage in comparative analyses."

Proposals must contain the following information:
Name, Address, Phone, and e-mail
Title of Presentation and whether the paper will be submitted for publication
A statement of up to 300 words explaining topic

The organizers welcome suggestions for full or partial panels.  The deadline for submission of proposals is June 6, 2011. Please submit proposals via e-mail to Professor Jason Gillmer of Gonzaga Law.  Those submitting can expect to receive a response by July 1, 2011.  Final drafts of papers will be due October 24, 2011. Publication decisions for papers will be made by the Gonzaga Law Review.
