Legal Experts Are reactng to SB 1070 ...

The Organizing Committee of the Association for the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities recently voted to relocate our March 2011 conference from Tempe, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada. We did so in response to Arizona's recent immigration law, SB 1070, and out of concern for our membership, should the law be in force next spring. We wish to thank Dean Paul Berman and those at ASU law school who welcomed and supported us in planning the conference, and who have been very understanding of our decision to relocate it. We also wish to thank Dean White of UNLV law school and Jay Mootz, who have graciously and generously facilitated our last-minute relocation. We hope to see you all in Las Vegas, March 11-12, 2011.

A Call for Participation in the 2011 conference soon will be posted here and distributed to the ASLCH listserv.

We have also located our next two conferences, though we have not yet set dates. We will convene at Texas Wesleyan School of Law in Fort Worth for our 2012 conference, and we will convene at Birkbeck University of London for our 2013 conference. Many thanks to all those at Texas Wesleyan and Birkbeck for agreeing to host us!
