"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 farcila@tourolaw.edu or Professor Alafair Burke at lawasb@hofstra.edu. For more details about the conference, please visit our conference website at http://www.bu.edu/law/nepoc.
