Baltimore Conference on The Fate of Scholarship in American Law Schools

CONFERENCE: The Fate of Scholarship in American Law Schools 

March 31-April 1, 2016

The University of Baltimore School of Law will host this groundbreaking conference   on March 31 and April 1, 2016, at UB’s landmark new John and Frances Angelos Law Center in midtown Baltimore.
As American legal education faces an identity crisis, what will become of scholarship in U.S. law schools? Will it survive the tumult – should it survive – and in what form?
The conference will reexamine first principles of legal scholarship – its value (to legal education, to the legal profession, to society) and its essential aspects – and will survey particular issues of contemporary concern, including emerging scholarly forms and technologies and the relationship among legal scholarship, journalism and new media.
The two-day conference will consist of themed plenary sessions, concurrent small-group sessions, opportunities to interact informally and a keynote address by Jack M. Balkin Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment at Yale Law School.
Questions and sponsorship interest may be directed to the conference organizer, UB School of Law Associate Dean for Faculty Scholarship C.J. Peters , at cpeters@ubalt.edu  or410.837.4509.
Online registration for the conference will be available soon. Watch this space for more information.
