The 2012 Conference theme, “Movimiento: The Movements of Latinos in Education and Advocacy,” will challenge and encourage participants to consider the historical struggles and victories within the formal education and legal systems as well as the possibilities for using our personal education to make change through current and future advocacy. This conference will focus on various historical and current movements including affirmative action, immigration, economic justice, health care reform, juvenile justice, prison reform, and much more. This will be an opportunity to bring together various sectors of the legal profession to understand and tackle these urgent issues.
