Alabama Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Law Review Co-Sponsors Symposium: Law and the Imagining of Difference

April 7, 2017
Legal scholars visited The University of Alabama School of Law to discuss how the law responds to difference and identity concerns. The symposium on Law and the Imagining of Difference explored how law responds to the claims of difference, how and when it recognizes difference and accommodates it, as well as when and why such recognition and accommodation is resisted. The symposium marked the 21st and final symposium organized by Austin Sarat, the Justice Hugo L. Black Visiting Senior Faculty Scholar at The University of Alabama School of Law.

The symposium featured:

Mark E. Brandon, dean, The University of Alabama School of Law
Megan A. Conway, Center for Disability Studies, University of Hawaii at Manoa
Zanita Fenton, University of Miami School of Law
Douglas NeJaime, UCLA School of Law
Austin Sarat, The University of Alabama School of Law and Amherst College
