The University of Baltimore School of Law's flagship journal, Law Review, provides in-depth analyses of current topics of interest to the legal community nationwide.
As an academic forum for legal scholarship, the journal is a valuable research tool for legal practitioners. The Law Review also operates as a training ground for its members, providing an opportunity for students to hone their writing, research, editing and time-management skills—skills that are prized in the job market. Under the direction of a student-run editorial board, Law Review is published three times a year. Articles are contributed by professors, practitioners, judges and students.
Inquiries regarding submissions are welcome.
University of Baltimore Law Review hosted a conference and symposium on the history of American enslavement as a lens to discuss slavery's evolution and its effects on our criminal justice system. The symposium took place at the UB School of Law on Nov. 15-16, 2019. Selected papers from the symposium will be published in Volume 49 of the Law Review.
Presented in concert with the Black Law Student Association and the Criminal Law Association, the symposium presented a unique opportunity for scholars, writers, practitioners and activists to share ideas and discourse on such topics as:
- The effects of slavery on the foundation of our current legal system;
- The transatlantic slave trade's impact on African American communities;
- Criminal justice policies that adversely affect African Americans;
- Mass incarceration and African American civil liberties.
The law firm of Kramon & Graham generously sponsored the symposium.
Call for Papers: Applied Feminism and Privacy
The Center on Applied Feminism at the University of Baltimore School of Law seeks paper proposals for the Twelfth Feminist Legal Theory Conference. We hope you will join us for this exciting conference on April 2 and 3, 2020. The theme is Privacy. As always, the conference focuses on the intersection of gender and race, class, gender identity, ability, and other personal identities.
We are at a critical time for a broad range of privacy issues. State-level abortion bans have put a spotlight on the importance of decisional privacy to women’s equality. Across America, advocates are fighting for reproductive justice and strategizing to preserve long-settled rights. At the same time, our informational privacy is increasingly precarious. Data brokers, app designers, and social media platforms are gathering and selling personal data in highly gendered ways.
As a result, women have been targeted with predatory marketing, intentionally excluded from job opportunities, and subject to menstrual tracking by marketers and employers. In online spaces, women have been objectified, cyber-stalked, and subject to revenge porn. With regard to physical privacy, the structural intersectionality of over-policing and mass incarceration impacts women of color and other women.
We seek submissions of papers that focus on the topic of Applied Feminism and Privacy. We will interrogate multiple aspects of privacy, including its physical, decisional, informational, and family dimensions. To submit a paper proposal, by Friday, November 1, 2019, please complete this form and include a 500-word abstract. Learn more about the call for papers and the symposium here.
