American University Washington College of Law’s Economic Justice Program’s third poverty law conference will be held on March 23-24, 2018.

Panels and speakers will present works related to poverty law generally and related to this year’s conference theme, “Poverty States: Federalism, Rights, and State Anti-Poverty Efforts.”

The conference theme focuses on the interplay between federal, state, and local anti-poverty efforts and programs, but this conference is a gathering for all whose work focuses on poverty and inequality and includes three main lines to the conference:

(1) Federalism (the relationship between the federal and state governments);

(2) State and Local Level Anti-Poverty Efforts (what is working and what is not working, including state constitutional rights, access to justice initiatives, supplemental state programs, etc.); and

(3) General Poverty Law Works-in-Progress (subject matter not limited in any way).
