CPILJ is pleased to host a discussion of Disparate Impact Theory and Other Forms of Non-Intentional Discrimination at the University of Connecticut School of Law on October 17, 2014. The event seeks to bring together leading experts from government, law schools and social science fields to explain Disparate Impact’s practical application and doctrinal viability. It is CPILJ’s hope that this symposium will help Connecticut’s legal community, and the state as a whole, better understand this doctrine.

Panelists include: Keynote Dr. Amy Wax, Robert Mundheim Professor of Law at University of Pennsylvania Law School; Erin Kemple, Executive Director of the Connecticut Fair Housing Center; Elizabeth Schneider, Rose L. Hoffer Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, Tom Goldstein, Co-founder and publisher of SCOTUSblog, and Ariel White, from the Department of Government at Harvard University among other panelists.
