Shutting Down the School to Prison Pipeline
“In these days, it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunities of an education.
Such an opportunity, where the state has undertaken to provide it,
is a right that must be made available on equal terms.”
Washington University Law School, the Center for Empirical Research in the Law and Olin Business School are pleased to host the 10th Annual Conference on Empirical Legal Studies (CELS) on October 30 and 31, 2015 in St. Louis, Missouri.
POVERTY LAW: ACADEMIC ACTIVISM
SEATTLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW
Call for Proposals:
We invite proposals for presentations at a Spring 2016 conference, “Poverty Law: Academic
Activism” to be held on Feb. 19-20, 2016, hosted by Seattle University School of Law. The
conference will focus on the connection between academics and activism, broadly understood. Just
as “poverty law” is a broad category that includes everything from welfare and education programs
Research into social dilemmas is a cornerstone in the social sciences. The defining characteristic of such dilemmas is that mutual cooperation among the actors involved is efficient but that, unless adequate institutions are in place or actors have social preferences, deviating from cooperation is rational from the individual viewpoint. As a consequence of this incentive to free ride, transactions are not undertaken and economies grow by less than their full potential.

Just as “poverty law” is a broad category that includes everything from welfare and education programs to immigration and tax policy, so too, “academic activism” includes a wide range of activities.
