Legal scholars concerned about economic justice and other social issues are meeting at the West Virginia University College of Law Nov. 2-3. 

The conference, Rising Together for Economic Hope, Power and Justice, is the annual meeting of ClassCrits, a network for the critical analysis of law and economic inequality. Presenters will examine a range of social concerns, including the opioid crisis, child and health care, immigration, poverty, racial inequality, economic development, and democracy.

Discussion panel sessions are open to the public and admission is free. 

“Legal scholars have the ability to provide fresh perspective and insight on some of the most pressing issues that face society,” said WVU law professor Matthew Titolo, who is helping organize the conference. “When we gather like this, the result can be engaging and viable solutions that we take back to our own classrooms and communities.”

Among the conference presenters are law professors from American University, Marquette University, University of Denver, New York Law School, University of Mississippi, University of New Mexico, University of Richmond, University of Tennessee, and West Virginia University.
