Loading Events

About the Symposium

Race and debt are both American institutions but are rarely discussed in relation to one another. The 2018 UCI Law Review Symposium, organized by the School of Law’s Center on Law, Equality and Race (CLEAR), will bring together leading thinkers to discuss race, debt, inequality, and the law. The event will include legal scholars, innovative individuals working in financial services, and scholars from the social sciences. They will discuss racial disparities in debt and the role of legal institutions in creating, perpetuating, and rectifying those disparities. Speakers will touch upon legal history, public policy, and legal reform, and will examine topics including banking, consumer credit, child support debt, criminal debt, and bankruptcy.
