100 Years of Oregon Law Review: Looking to the Future of Racial Justice and Criminal Law

Friday, April 8 at 12:00pm to 3:00pm

Ford Alumni Center, Ballroom
1720 East 13th Eugene, OR

Join Oregon Law Review for our 2021 symposium on racial justice and criminal law. We intend to provide a forum for authors to share their work and for students, alumni, practitioners, and community members to engage in discussion. 

In 1921, Klansmen paraded through Oregon’s streets to aid in what would be their 1922 sweeping victory of state legislative seats, the Anti-Sterilization League was battling decisions by the Oregon State Eugenics Board to sterilize “confirmed criminals,” laws prohibiting Black people from living in Oregon and people of color from voting in Oregon would be on the books for another four and five years respectively, and faculty at the University of Oregon published Oregon Law Review’s first volume.

A century later, Oregon Law Review is publishing novel legal scholarship that examines the present intersection of race and criminal law as we look to the century ahead.
