The Michigan State University Law Review is holding a symposium, “Gender and the Legal Profession’s Pipeline to Power,” April 12-13, 2012, at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in Detroit, Michigan. The symposium will serve as a catalyst to raise awareness about, discuss the dynamics of, and strategize solutions to the persistent gender disparity that exists in positions of power in the legal profession. Scholars and experts from the fields of law, political science, journalism, and beyond will reframe and advance the course of existing dialogue on gender equality. This announcement invites proposals from individuals across disciplines who are interested in contributing to this conversation by speaking on a panel at the symposium. We especially encourage proposals from junior scholars and new voices who are focusing their work on the issues that will be explored through this event. Submissions must include a title and abstract of no more than 1,000 words, due by November 15, 2011. Please include your full contact information, including an email, phone number, and mailing address. Participants will be notified about their acceptance by December 2011.
