CFP: Police Brutality Symposium—Seattle, WA

Seattle Journal for Social Justice

The Seattle Journal for Social Justice will hold a symposium titled “Police Brutality: Its Chilling Effect and Innovative Solutions” on April 6, 2018 at Seattle University School of Law in Seattle, WA.

“Police Brutality” is a topic addressed throughout the country by a variety of constituencies. We are especially interested in papers and presentations from all academic disciplines, from practitioners, and people in the field and on the ground. This topic triggers questions about the application of law and justice as it applies to race, culture, gender, religion and socioeconomic status as they relate to policing and communities. The Seattle Journal for Social Justice hopes that this symposium will serve as a platform for researchers, practitioners, and community organizers to interrogate, to analyze, and to create new developments in this arena

Presentation proposals (including the title, authors, and an abstract) should be sent to (with the subject line: Symposium Proposal) by January 10, 2018. For more information, please visit the symposium website.
