Third National People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference

The Third National People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference will be held at Seton Hall University Law School from September 9-12, 2010. The theme for this year's conference is "Our Country, Our World in a "Post-Racial" Era." A call for papers and panel proposals has been made. The deadline to submit an paper or proposal is March 12, 2010. A link to the call for papers and panels may be found at: http://law.shu.edu/About/News_Events/thirdnationalpoc/call-for-papers.cfm A student and junior faculty writing competition will be conducted. This should prove to be a wonderful and enpowering event.

  1. I believe the true question now becomes if the conference is one that is still considered to be relevant. I think that there is still a great relevance but what these racial issues mean for a modern generation versus what it meant for those during the civil rights movement is completely different. And so one must ask themselves if students and the generation now still value it the same way. I am not certain if our current generation, understands different historical struggles, and a lot of opposition that older African-Americans went through. But the efforts by Seton Hall School of Law must be commended in during their parts towards keeping people informed and for that I say thank you.
