Carolina Law to Host Inaugural Scholarship Roundtable on Law, Inequality, and the Civil-Criminal DivideOctober 21, 2022
On November 18, an outstanding group of scholars will participate in the inaugural Carolina Law Roundtable on Law, Inequality, and the Civil-Criminal Divide.
The roundtable was organized by and will be led by Associate Professor and Henry P. Brandis Distinguished Scholar Eisha Jain. The roundtable was created to bring together academic scholars who are currently writing books to present their work and gather feedback from colleagues who can offer perspectives from different areas of the law.
“We often think about law in doctrinal silos. But that’s not how law is experienced. This roundtable offers scholars the opportunity to be in conversation with others who bring different areas of expertise – criminal law, immigration law, civil rights, legal history, for instance. This helps us see connections between different areas of law that we might otherwise overlook,” says Jain.
The books-in-progress presented at the 2022 roundtable will include topics such as anti-discrimination law, voting rights, global health, policing, and criminal records. It will feature the following scholars:
- Aziza Ahmed: Boston University
- Deborah Archer: New York University
- Monica Bell: Yale University
- Guy-Uriel Charles: Harvard University
- Jessica Eaglin: Indiana University-Bloomington
- Margaret Hu: College of William & Mary
- Ben Levin: University of Colorado-Boulder
- Timothy Lovelace: Duke University
- Jamelia Morgan: Northwestern University
- Alexandra Natapoff: Harvard University
- Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia: Penn State University
- Lauren Sudeall: Georgia State University
