The NU Law Journal Announces Symposium Topic

The Northeastern University Law Journal is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Symposium on Prisoners’ Rights in the Modern Era in January 2014. In sponsoring this symposium, the Journal Staff hopes to continue its tradition of highlighting a relevant, yet nuanced social justice issue that is the focus of the work of many of Northeastern University’s alumni, faculty, and law students. This symposium will feature speakers and a series of panels on a range of subtopics, all viewed under the modern lens. Anticipated topics include post-conviction access to legal representation, rights of LGBT prisoners and other special prison populations, implications of the prison privatization movement, and prisoner access to services during incarceration and upon release. Planning is well underway and more information will follow in the weeks to come. Please stay tuned!

  1. Some interesting angles might also be a prison librarian’s perspective on pro se representation as well as that of counsel who defend privatized prisons against inmate claims, to the extent they round out any of your chosen subtopics. Sounds like a great symposium!
