Civil Rights Litigation since 9/11 Conference – Austin, TX

The University of Texas School of Law’s William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law will be hosting a one-day conference on February 3, 2012 entitled Barriers and Innovations in Civil Rights Litigation Since 9/11: Practical and Theoretical Perspectives. This conference is designed to bring together leading civil rights litigators, advocates, and scholars to explore the confluence of two notable trends in civil rights litigation: expanded use of civil rights damages remedies across substantive arenas including criminal justice, immigration, and national security; and constriction of the availability of such remedies via immunities, and secrecy doctrines.
