Legal and Political Change During the Obama Era
On January 20, 2017, the first President of Color, Barack Obama, concludes his second term. One week later, scholars, policy-makers, lawyers, activists, and law students convene to reflect upon this historic period in American history. On Friday and Saturday, January 27 and 28, 2017, the Mid-Atlantic People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference (MAPOC) will hold a conference, entitled “Legal and Political Change During the Obama Era,” at the George Washington University Law School. Our goal is to examine and assess shifts in law and policy, at all levels of government, over the past eight years as well as to determine where there has been stasis.
