NEPOC wants you!

SECOND CALL FOR WORKS IN PROGRESS
NORTHEAST PEOPLE OF COLOR CONFERENCE (NEPOC) 2007
Moving Forward or Moving Backward?:
Criminal Justice and Immigration in the 21st Century
Southern New England School of Law
North Dartmouth, MA
September 14th - 15th, 2007

NEPOC 2007 will include various Works In Progress (WIP) sessions that will
provide the opportunity to submit and present a scholarly WIP and receive
feedback, both from an assigned commentator and from the audience.  This is
an excellent opportunity to develop and refine a scholarly project in a
supportive environment.  WIP submissions from junior faculty and faculty of
color are particularly welcome.  WIP can address any subject matter and need
not be limited to the conference themes.  Those interested in submitting a
WIP, or in serving as a commentator, please contact:
Fabio Arcila, Jr., [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> , or
Alafair Burke, [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>

This year's conference will focus upon the dramatic transformations occurring
in criminal justice and immigration law.  Powerful forces such as the
stresses of globalization and the ever-increasing diversity of the American
population demand change.  This conference will explore the hope and the
dangers of these legal evolutions with panels on community criminal justice,
law enforcement and the risks of discretion, immigration controversies on the
local and global levels, and the increasing intersections of criminal law and
immigration law.  In addition, we will be conferring various awards, holding
mentorship sessions, and are particularly excited that Charles Ogletree will
be our keynote speaker.  For more details, please visit the conference
