Presenting student organizations: Legal Forum

We divide and partition the polity through laws that leave their mark on those at the boundaries. The University of Chicago Legal Forum will convene scholars to challenge the laws of separation. Panelists from across the US will meet to explore voting rights; redistricting; markets; immigration; and the very nature of liberal democracy. Where the current law governing borders and boundaries is deficient, we plan to offer remedies.
