Stanford Journal of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Fall Symposium
October 27, 2012
559 Nathan Abbott Way
SJCRCL's fall symposium will address the Roberts Court’s civil rights and civil liberties jurisprudence, with a specific focus on cases from the 2011 and 2012 terms, including Miller v. Alabama (life without parole for juvenile offenders), Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC (employment discrimination claims against religious employers), and Fisher v. University of Texas (affirmative action in higher education). This symposium aims to parse out the ideological and political themes that animate the Court’s decisions and explore their practical implications.
