Ohio State Law Journal Symposium: The School Desegregation Cases and the Uncertain Future of Racial Equality
In 2007, the Supreme Court ended its term with a historic ruling on voluntary integration in public schools. The Court’s decision has sparked a national conversation on race in public policy – a conversation that will continue at the Ohio State Law Journal Annual Symposium, “The School Desegregation Cases and the Uncertain Future of Racial Equality,” on Feb. 21-22. Top legal scholars, social scientists, and education experts will gather at Moritz to collectively explore the potential impact of this decision on the pursuit of racial equality in public schools and beyond. Distinguished speakers include Erwin Chemerinsky, Duke University School of Law, and Charles Ogletree, Harvard Law School. All are encouraged to attend. Pending approval, 10 Ohio CLE credits can be obtained. For more information, please visit: moritzlaw.osu.edu/lawjournal/symposium.a
