2015 Symposium

Critical Race Theory and Empirical Methods

Friday, October 9, 2015


Join the Wisconsin Law Review for its 2015 symposium focusing on an emerging area of interdisciplinary legal scholarship that bridges the conceptual and methodological gaps between empirical and doctrinal scholarship on race.


Participants will include practitioners and scholars from law, the humanities, and the social sciences who will be brought together to critically engage and articulate the previously unexplored confluences between empirical studies of race and identity and doctrinal/critical work looking at similar subject matters.


It will be a public event and consist of three panel presentations and morning and afternoon keynote speakers. The panels will begin with a presentation from each panelist, followed by a moderated discussion among the panel members and audience.


The event will be held at the University of Wisconsin Law School in Room 2260 and will take place on October 9, 2015 beginning at 8:30am. Registration is free. Prior registration is encouraged to facilitate planning although we welcome walk-ins too. Please use the link below to register by September 30, 2015:
