15th Annual Sylvania Woods Conference on African Americans and the Law

Thursday, April 7, 2011
03:00 PM - 08:30 PM
American University Washington College of Law, Sixth Floor
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

This conference honors the late Judge Woods, a 1960 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 both the Fifth District Court of Maryland and the Circuit Court for Prince George's County. Through the inclusive participation of the community, the day's program will again address 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 at the dinner, respectively, to an exceptional African American, a graduating student, and an African-American alumna/us. A careers component will round out the schedule of conference activities.
