The 5th Annual Symposium on Constitutional Law
The U.S. Feminist Judgments Project: Rewriting the Law, Writing the Future
October 20-21, 2016
This year's symposium focuses on questions of gender and equality. It flows from the U.S. Feminist Judgments Project, a book pulling together a group of leading feminist legal scholars in the United States to rewrite, using feminist reasoning, the most significant Supreme Court cases on gender from the 1800s to the present day. The symposium picks up where the book leaves off, beginning the discussion of how to integrate feminist thinking and appreciation of gender equality into judicial decision making.
The keynote luncheon speaker will be Sally Kenney, author of Gender & Justice: Why Women in the Judiciary Really Matter and professor of political science at Tulane University. A special panel will feature women judges reflecting on their experiences in decision making. Other speakers include the editors and contributors from the U.S. Feminist Judgments book as well as scholars from multiple fields exploring the intersection of gender and lawmaking.
