Eleventh Feminist Legal Theory Conference

Description

APPLIED FEMINISM AND #METOO

We are happy to announce the Eleventh Feminist Legal Theory Conference sponsored
by The University of Baltimore School of Law’s Center on Applied Feminism and The
University of Baltimore Law Review. The theme of this year’s conference is Applied
Feminism and #MeToo and it will be held at the University of Baltimore School of Law
in Baltimore, MD, on April 11 and 12, 2019. The conference will focus on the #MeToo
social movement, and its impact and limitations nationally and internationally. The
conference will examine emerging proposals to change institutions where gender-based
harassment and assault occur, are investigated, or are adjudicated, such as
workplaces, universities, and courts. The conference will also explore and offer reforms
regarding critical issues such as credibility discounting, survivor trauma, anger,
contrition, restorative approaches for accountability, and the lack of visibility for all
persons subjected to gender-based harassment and assault, such as those who are of
color, immigrant, young, involved in the criminal justice system, and male or a gender
minority.

The conference will begin at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2019, with a panel and
facilitated discussion. The conference then continues all day Friday, April 12, 2019, with
national and international academics, practitioners, and activists presenting their
academic papers. The Center on Applied Feminism, co-directed by Professors Margaret
Johnson and Michele Gilman, is grounded in clinical practice and theory and examines
how feminist and other critical legal theories can benefit legal practitioners in
representing clients, shape legal doctrine and play a role in policy debates and
implementation.

The specific conference schedule will be posted in early 2019. For information about
