Call for Papers: Race and Police Powers
The UMKC Law Review invites submissions for its Symposium on Race and Police Powers. The submission deadline is July 31, 2016.
In the two years that have passed since the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, what progress, if any, has been made to address issues of race and police misconduct? What areas are most critical in advancing civil rights and appropriate policing? This symposium seeks papers covering the topic of race and power in the aftermath of a spate of high-profile shootings of unarmed minority men across the county. The symposium will explore diverse topics, including police violence and accountability, the role of the law in combating racism, police reform efforts, citizen unrest, proper remedies for police misconduct, and racial profiling.
Submit a brief proposal, including your name, institution, and contact information to the Law Review’s Symposia Editors, Lauren Dollar (email@example.com) and Mollie Harmon (firstname.lastname@example.org), with the subject line “Symposium Call for Papers.”
