Call for papers and presenters Transgender Law symposium

Touro Law Center’s online Journal of Race, Gender and Ethnicity is pleased to announce a symposium, Transgender Law: Challenging the Boundaries of Law and Gender to be held on Friday, February 20, 2009 at the Touro Law Center in Central Islip, New York. The Journal is currently seeking presenters for the symposium. Presentations may address any issue related to transgender law, including but not limited to workplace law, health care, criminal justice, and non-discrimination laws. The Journal is also interested in proposals on New York-specific topics.

A transcript of the symposium will be published on the Journal’s website, in a similar format to our previous symposium on Women in the Law, which featured a keynote address by Chief Judge Judith Kaye of the New York Court of Appeals.

Presenters at the symposium will also have the option of publishing their papers in a symposium issue of the Journal of Race, Gender and Ethnicity.

We invite proposals of 500 to 1000 words. Abstracts should be submitted in electronic format via e-mail to Professor Meredith R. Miller at mmiller@tourolaw.edu, please carbon copy Jeannine Farino, Editor-in-Chief, at jeannine-farino@tourolaw.edu.

In the body of the e-mail, please include your current contact information.

The deadline for proposals is December 19, 2008. All submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

We will endeavor to obtain CLE credit for attendees of this program, which will be co-sponsored by LeGAL, the Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender Law Association of Greater New York.
