Beginning in academic year 2016/2017, Law & Inequality: A Journal of Theory and Practice will host a biannual symposium that explores a current issue of law and inequality. In the fall of 2016, the Journal hosted its 35th Anniversary symposium which honored Catharine A. MacKinnon, the Journal’s founder. The symposium focused on MacKinnon’s work Toward a Feminist Theory of the State, focusing on where MacKinnon’s theories stand today and what has yet to transpire in terms of her vision. Past symposiums have explored assisted reproduction, law in the modern American family, the rights of children, issues facing LGBTQ athletes, critical race theory, and civil rights.
