Oklahoma City University School of Law has posted a call for papers for a conference entitled, Wills, Trusts and Estates Meets Gender, Race and Class, on Friday, September 27-28, 2013. Provided below is a description of the event:
This conference seeks to bring the insights of progressive property theory to the area of inheritance and succession law and will address the many points of intersection between inheritance law, gender and race, social structure, wealth inequality, domestic violence, and indigenous people’s rights, among others. Recognizing that inheritance law is a society’s DNA, the conference will present theoretical, historical, and practical approaches to ways it has and continues to maintain social structure and ways it can change it.
The deadline for proposals is August 1. Send them to cspivack[@]okcu.edu
