American University Washington College of Law is hosting a poverty law conference, “Poverty States: Federalism, Rights, and State Anti-Poverty Efforts,” on March 23-24, 2018.
This conference will focus on the interplay between federal, state, and local anti-poverty efforts and programs. This conference is a gathering for all whose work focuses on poverty and inequality. There are three main lines to the conference:
(1) Federalism (the relationship between the federal and state governments)
(2) State and Local Level Anti-Poverty Efforts (what is working and what is not working, including state constitutional rights, access to justice initiatives, supplemental state programs, etc.)
(3) General Poverty Law Works-in-Progress (subject matter not limited in any way)
Deadline: If you would like to present, please submit a title and abstract by September 15, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
