AALS Virtual Poverty Law Workshop Announcement

AALS Virtual Poverty Law Workshop

The AALS Section on Poverty Law is sponsoring a Virtual Poverty Law Workshop this summer. We were motivated to organize something in light of the cancelled conferences and travel restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is intended to be an informal gathering of mainly legal academics to give meaningful feedback to junior faculty. We have scheduled several presentations throughout the summer and include the list below, but we welcome other scholars to present or comment going forward. We hope to continue this workshop into the academic year.

  • June 18: Medha Makhlouf (Penn State Dickinson) with Nicole Huberfeld (Boston University) 
  • June 25: Ariel Jurow Kleiman (San Diego) with Sara Sternberg Greene (Duke)
