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.

ANNOUNCEMENT: SECOND ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL AND COMPARATIVE DISASTER LAW ESSAY CONTEST, 2017
Announcement: Second Annual International and Comparative Disaster Law Essay Contest, 2017
Call for Abstracts
Ten years ago, a group of scholar-activists organized a series of conversations about law and economicclass. Building on “outsider” jurisprudence that has moved inequalities of race, gender, and sexuality from the margins to the center of law, the group proposed a jurisprudence of economic inequality. To foreground economic justice, the group sought to critique mainstream law and economics and to focus on the lives of poor and working class people.
