UDC Law Review Symposium

POVERTY’S COST: HOW PRIVATIZATION, PROFITS, AND PUBLIC POLICY PLACE HIGHER BURDENS ON THE POOR AND PEOPLE OF COLOR

 

The 2017 UDC Law Review Symposium will address the effects of current government policies on vulnerable communities, particularly the poor and people of color.

Possible topics may include:

  • Social, health, and community costs of environmental deregulation and self-reporting.
  • Human and economic impacts of privatizing criminal justice services, including private prisons, bail services, immigration detention, and community monitoring.
  • Hidden costs of privatizing public utilities.
  • Discriminatory impacts of deregulating the financial services industries.
  • Economic and social costs of privatizing and deregulating education.

Additionally, the Symposium will examine the ongoing impact of lobbying and legislative efforts to address these cost inequities, as well as public policies and strategies for countering these negative effects.

Call for Papers:

The Law Review’s editorial board invites submissions on topics exploring ways in which society at large subsidizes corporations, with disproportionate impacts on low-income people and people of color. Submissions from academics and practitioners are invited and welcomed.

To be considered for inclusion in the 2017 Symposium Edition, please send an abstract (300-word limit) of your proposed paper ASAP to lawreview@udc.edu, with Attn: Jessica Christy in the subject line. First draft of papers are due in August 2017.
