UPDATE ON 3/9/2020: We regret to announce that, given recent public health advisories discouraging large gatherings of people, we must postpone our “Women & Law: A Conversation with Dr. Karen Korematsu” event to a later date. We understand that this may cause disappointment, but we want to ensure that we are putting people’s health first. Thank you for your understanding. Original posting below.
The historic joint publication, Women & Law, includes personal essays authored by prominent women in the legal community. Authors reflect on topics such as motherhood, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, and working as a woman of color in the legal profession. Dr. Karen Korematsu, Executive Director of the Fred T. Korematsu Institute, authored an essay, Carrying on Korematsu: Reflections on my Father’s Legacy, on behalf of the California Law Review for this special joint issue that brought together the flagship law reviews of the top sixteen law schools in the country.
Please join us for this special lunch program commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the historic joint Women & Law publication. Dr. Korematsu will open by reading an excerpt from her essay. Dean Molly Van Houweling will then moderate a conversation with Dr. Korematsu.
Boxed lunches will be available while supplies last. This event is open to the public and will take place in Room 132 in the Law Building
Sponsored by The Fred T. Korematsu Institute, Berkeley Law Office of the Dean, and the California Law Review.
Please RSVP on our Facebook event.
