Denver University Law Review 2013 Symposium: Forty Years Since Keyes
Friday, February 1, 2013 at 8:00am - Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 2:00pm
Location: Room 165
On January 31–February 2, 2013, the Denver University Law Review will host its 2013 annual symposium titled “Forty Years Since Keyes v. School District No. 1: Equality of Educational Opportunity and the Legal Construction of Modern Metropolitan America.” Emanating from Denver, Colorado, Keyes v. School District No. 1 was first school-desegregation case from “a major city outside of the South” to reach the United States Supreme Court. As such, it compelled the Justices to begin to formulate constitutional principles that would be applicable to an America that had dramatically changed since the Court’s 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision. By examining the forty years since Keyes, the symposium will highlight how and in what ways lawyers, judges, educators, policy makers, and citizens think about equality of educational opportunity in the multiracial and metropolitan areas of the United States in the twenty-first century. All are welcome, and CLE credit will be available for the various panels, lectures, and workshops. The events on Thursday, January 31 will take place at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and those on Friday and Saturday, February 1–2 will take place at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.
