2019 Feminist Legal Theory Conference
- John and Frances Angelos Law Center
We are happy to announce the Eleventh Feminist Legal Theory Conference sponsored by The University of Baltimore School of Law's Center on Applied Feminism and The University of Baltimore Law Review. The theme of this year's conference is Applied Feminism and #MeToo and it will be held at the University of Baltimore School of Law in Baltimore, MD, on April 11 and 12, 2019. The conference will focus on the #MeToo social movement, and its impact and limitations nationally and internationally. The conference will examine emerging proposals to change institutions where gender-based harassment and assault occur, are investigated, or are adjudicated, such as workplaces, universities, and courts. The conference will also explore and offer reforms regarding critical issues such as credibility discounting, survivor trauma, anger, contrition, restorative approaches for accountability, and the lack of visibility for all persons subjected to gender-based harassment and assault, such as those who are of color, immigrant, young, involved in the criminal justice system, and male or a gender minority.
The conference will begin at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2019, with a panel and facilitated discussion. The conference then continues all day Friday, April 12, 2019,with national and international academics, practitioners, and activists presenting their academic papers. The Center on Applied Feminism, co-directed by Professors Margaret Johnson and Michele Gilman, is grounded in clinical practice and theory and examines how feminist and other critical legal theories can benefit legal practitioners in representing clients, shape legal doctrine and play a role in policy debates and implementation.
The specific conference schedule will be posted in early 2019. For information about this conference and past conferences, please visit http://law.ubalt.edu/centers/caf/conference/EleventhFeministLegalTheoryConf.cfm.
