Oklahoma City University School of Law hosted a conference yesterday on Wills, Trusts &
Estates Meets Gender, Race & Class
[The conference] will 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
both theoretical, historical and practical approaches to ways it has and
continues to maintain social structure and ways it can change it.
