The Law and Society Association annual conference will be held in Toronto on June 7-10, 2018.

As usual, The Collaborative Research Network on Culture, Society, and IP (CRN 14) will help coordinate and sponsor both individual and complete session proposal submissions for this meeting. One benefit of CRN 14 sponsorship is that IP -related sessions will typically be scheduled so as not to overlap with other IP sessions. Professors Ghosh and Gallagher serve as co-chairs of CRN 14.

Ever since Europeans first settled the continent over four hundred years ago, racial injustice has existed in North America. Human bondage was formally recognized in the United States for nearly a century following the Nation's birth in 1776.  While the Thirteenth Amendment officially abolished slavery in 1865 and the Fourteenth Amendment mandated equal protection in 1868, nearly another century passed before "separate but equal" was repudiated and some progress was made.  Today we still see persistent racial inequities throughout American society.
