On Friday, March 10, 2006, the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender, the Harvard Law Review and the Harvard Civil Rightsâ€“Civil Liberties Law Review will host a symposium entitled”Results: Legal Education, Institutional Change and a Decade of Gender Studies,”in the Ames Courtroom of Harvard Law School.
A 2004 study on student experiences at Harvard confirmed what studies over the past decade reveal: by most measures, women do not perform as well as men in law school. Rather than advocate for a particular set of responses to these findings, this conference is designed to foster discussion about the institutional challenges these patterns highlight. The deans of five law schools from across country and faculty experts in gender and legal pedagogy will discuss the institutional challenges these studies suggest.
