"Education & the Economy" Conference Scheduled for September 2008

This year's Northeast People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference will be held September 12-14, 2008 at Boston University School of Law, and there's still time to sign up either to present a work in progress or to comment on a work in progress.

These sessions provide the opportunity to present a scholarly work in progress and receive feedback, both from an assigned commentator and from the audience. This is an excellent way to develop and refine a scholarly project in a supportive environment.  Work in progress submissions from junior faculty and faculty of color are particularly welcome.  A project can address any subject matter and need not be limited to the conference themes (this year: Education & the Economy: The Real Lives of People of Color).

Those interested in applying to present a project should submit a working title and brief (200 word) abstract by May 15, 2008.  If you are a professor willing to comment on a work in progress, please contact us with a list of appropriate subject matters.  All correspondence should be sent to either Professor Fabio Arcila, Jr., at or Professor Alafair Burke at For more details about the conference, please visit our conference website at
