On April 10, 2011, the MSU Law Review
will host a symposium that will feature speakers and attorneys who were involved in the landmark desegregation cases during the Civil Rights Movement.
Coinciding with the yearlong Project 60/50, “Pursuing the Dreams of Brown and the Civil Rights Act: A Living History of the Fight for Educational Equality
” will examine the progress of integration and desegregation by examining historic cases.
“Desegregation is an ever present issue in education,” said Shannon Smith, MSU Law Review senior symposia editor. “The symposia will provide students an opportunity to meet scholars and individuals that were involved in historic cases that moved desegregation in education forward for diverse groups of children across the nation.”
The symposium will also provide law students an opportunity to gain professional skills and references through their interaction with experienced attorneys that will help them obtain employment in the future.
