LMU Loyola Law School (LLS) and the LLS Anti-Racism Center (LARC) are pleased to host the Western People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference (WPOCLSC) and the Conference of Asian Pacific American Law Faculty (CAPALF) joint convening in Los Angeles from June 25 to June 27, 2023. The theme of this year’s conference is Actualizing Justice. It aims to center the praxis dimension of legal scholarship that intersects with race alongside the concerns of other historically subordinated groups. It has been four years since this conference came together at UNLV School of Law and its inspiration has endured. In the meantime, however, the interaction of dysfunctional and harmful legal systems, enforcement regimes, and societal stratification, has been exacerbated by diminished public trust, a polarized political landscape, and the concentration of wealth and power. Law professors of color have moved beyond structural critiques of these realities to advance innovative strategies to “actualize justice” by advocating for racial and social justice through direct representation, movement building, and/or systemwide transformation. The 2023 WPOCLSC/CAPALF Conference hopes to bring together our growing community through the sharing of our work and ideas toward “actualizing justice.” We welcome law professors of color at any stage in their career, especially emerging law faculty. We encourage your participation by submitting works-in-progress, incubator ideas, and serving as discussants. Please see the conference webpage for more information.
