The theme for this year’s annual course is Civil Rights, Human Rights, and Other Critical Issues in U.S. Law. The local organizing committee is placing recent events in U.S. and international law and governance on the agenda for analysis and discussion, including how these issues may impact law librarianship. Some of the exciting planned sessions include:

  • CDC: From AIDS to Zika: Access to Healthcare as a Human Right
  • Panel: Information Literacy in a Fake News World
  • Critical Topic: International Terrorism
  • Global and Local Challenges to Refugee Protection
  • The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow: Civil Rights Struggles in the American South
  • Profit-Seeking Courts and the Criminalization of Poverty

The schedule will also include trips to local Atlanta attractions, including the Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Carter Center, and the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. See the Venues page for more information about these attractions and other locations.
