2015 Symposium: Persisting Discrimination in the Legal Academy

Event Date: January 4, 2015 Publication Date: October 16, 2015

This Symposium, hosted by the AALS, grew out of the ideas of a group of faculty members from all over the country, inspired by a suggestion from Professor Meera Deo of Thomas Jefferson School of Law. These faculty banded together to propose a “crosscutting program” at the 2015 meeting of the AALS that would draw from empirical data, legal research, litigation strategy, and personal experience to both further conversations about the persistence of discrimination in the legal academy and activate strategies for addressing continuing problems. The articles published in this Symposium issue arose from the presentations made at the event, which took place in January 2015.
