Southern California Law and Social Sciences (SoCLASS) presents its inaugural event:
Law at the Fault Lines

A conference exploring how law influences and is influenced by fissure between social and political groups.

*FREE FOR ALL 5C Faculty, Staff, and Students

March 1, 2013, 9am-6pm, with a keynote address by Robert A. Kagan, title: "American Adversarial Legalism: Fading, Spreading, Still Entrenched?" 

 The newly formed Southern California Law and Social Science (SoCLASS) Forum brings together scholars from Southern California to share their research in American, Comparative, and International Law.

The inaugural conference will take place on Friday, March 1, 2013, from 9:00am to 5:30pm, at Pomona College (Frank Blue Room).

The conference theme, “Law at the Fault Lines,” emphasizes the ways in which law influences and is influenced by “fault lines” between social and political groups.

The conference will include three thematically organized panels – Gender & Law, Marginalization and Law, and Transitional Justice in Comparative Perspective. 

Robert A. Kagan (Professor Emeritus of Political Science and Law, University of California, Berkeley) will deliver a luncheon keynote address: "American Adversarial Legalism: Fading, Spreading, Still Entrenched?"
