Mid-Atlantic People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference

Race & Rights in the 21st Century: Next Generation Issues

Washington College of Law
Founders' Celebration 2006

January 27-28, 2006

The Washington College of Law will host this year's Mid-Atlantic People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference as the first event of the Founder's Celebration for 2006. The Mid-Atlantic People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference is designed to give law faculty of color an opportunity to share ideas for scholarly projects, workshop works-in-progress, mentor junior law faculty members and to discuss critical and timely topics with law students and alumni. This year's Conference theme is "Race & Rights in the 21st Century: Next Generation Issues" and will include presentations by law professors from around the region (and beyond) on topics of interest ranging from Citizenship and Voting Rights to Criminal Justice and Public/Private Economic Justice. There will also be workshops for legal scholarship in various stages of completion. The keynote speaker for the Conference is Professor Taunya Banks of the University of Maryland and former Visiting Professor at the Washington College of Law.

Having the Mid-Atlantic Legal Scholarship Conference kick off the 2006 Founder's Celebration is particularly special because the organization selected Dean Claudio Grossman as the Charles Hamilton Houston Outstanding Dean of the Region in 2002.
