13th Annual Sylvania Woods Conference on African Americans and the Law

Thursday, April 2, 2009
02:00 PM - 08:30 PM

This annual conference honors the late Judge Woods, a 1960 WCL alumnus, who practiced law in both the District of Columbia and Maryland, faithfully served his community and his church, and went on to sit on the Fifth District Court of Maryland and, later, the Circuit Court for Prince George's County. The conference will again address -through the participation of practicing lawyers, jurists, alumni, faculty, students, and administrators - matters of law that profoundly affect African Americans and their cultures. The North Star Award, the Rising Star Award, and the Hairston Award will be presented, respectively, to a person from the black community who has done good and done well, a third-year law student, and members of the African-American alumni.

Presented by the Office of Diversity Services
