THE NEW FACE OF WOMENíS LEGAL HISTORY SYMPOSIUM on Friday, October 19, 2007, brings together legal scholars and historians to focus on modern scholarship reviving and recreating the field of womenís history. The broad theme reaches the diverse array of topics that form the base of recent work in gender and legal scholarship. Panelists will discuss Women in the Courts, Women and Race in the Family, and Writing Women's History, and will include a keynote lecture by Reva Siegel from Yale. The annual symposium is part of the tradition growing out of The University of Akronís Constitutional Law Center. In 1986, in anticipation of the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, the United States Congress established Constitutional Law Centers at four law schools. The primary purpose of the center is to promote scholarship concerning the U.S. Constitution, to commemorate the creation of that document and to help illuminate its application to modern times.
