The Feminist Legal Theory Conference originally scheduled for 2020 has been rescheduled to August 22 - 23, 2021 due to COVID-19 disruptions.
The Center on Applied Feminism serves as a bridge between feminist legal theory and the law.
Unique within the legal academy, the center seeks to apply feminist insights to legal practice and the policy arena. In particular, the center examines how feminist theory can benefit legal practitioners in representing clients, shape legal doctrine and play a role in policy debates and implementation. The center has faculty affiliates from throughout the university. In addition to holding conferences and regular colloquia on emerging legal areas that intersect with feminism, the center sponsors the Special Topics in Applied Feminism course and helps students plan for careers in feminist advocacy.
