The Cardozo Journal of Law & Gender will hold a Symposium on February 25, 2009. The topic is, “What to Expect: Legal Developments and Challenges in Reproductive Justice.” Here are the program description and agenda:
In this time of political change and economic uncertainty, the status of reproductive rights is shifting rapidly. Advocates are trying to understand these rights broadly and inclusively to anticipate potential avenues for development of social justice and its obstacles. What do new lawyers need to know about the present landscape to help achieve reproductive justice?
