This coming spring will see the publication of the Harvard Civil Rights – Civil Liberties Law Review’s (CR-CL) 55th volume. To celebrate more than a half-century of pushing the bounds of legal scholarship, we are holding a 55th anniversary conference at Harvard Law School on March 6-7, 2020 in Langdell Hall North, Room 225. We look forward to hosting practitioners, policymakers, students, and scholars for an engaging series of discussions and social events.
The conference, entitled “A Tipping Point,” will center on the enormity of the moment in which our world finds itself. Economic and social inequity, reactionary politics, and unabated environmental degradation are on the rise. But so too is a newly invigorated and truly intersectional progressive movement. The choices we make in the law today are likely to determine whether our nation—and indeed our world—will ever become more open, more equitable, and more just. Our six panel discussions are designed to explore these possibilities.
