Law and Inequalities: Global and LocalRecent decades have seen the persistence and growth of powerful inequalities within and between groups and within and among nations. The 2014 program theme returns to a question central to the Association’s founding: the role of law and legal institutions in sustaining, creating, interrogating, and ameliorating inequalities. The 2014 Program invites participants to explore and consider three questions:
- How can Law and Society scholarship contribute to unearthing and understanding inequalities?
- How can Law and Society scholarship contribute to the critical interrogation of discourses of equality and inequality and help to reveal what is at stake in these concepts?
- What impact can we expect these scholarly contributions to have on the persistence of these inequalities and on public discourse about them?

The deadline for proposal submission is October 15, 2013. Registration will begin in early 2014.If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you will join in what promises to be a full and exciting program in Minneapolis!
