On October 11, 2013, a diverse group of civil rights scholars met at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor to assess the interpretation, development, and administration of civil rights law in the five decades since President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Conference participants examined a host of emerging civil rights issues using doctrinal, jurisprudential, historical, sociological, policy-analytic, and other perspectives.
In cooperation with the University of Michigan Law School, the Legal Scholarship Network (LSN) is pleased to announce the eJournal, "A Nation of Widening Opportunities: The Civil Rights Act at Fifty". This eJournal provides a data warehouse for all abstracts and papers presented at the conference.
This eJournal is available to all subscribers at no charge and contains abstracts of the meeting papers with links to the full text in the SSRN eLibrary.
