The Black Law Students Association is hosting the 28th Annual Sadie T.M. Alexander Commemorative Conference on February 27, 2016. This year’s theme will be “Current Applications of the Fourteenth Amendment.” BLSA will examine the Fourteenth Amendment with an emphasis on the role that the amendment and the Equal Protection Clause in particular play in the black community. We will discuss issues ranging from law enforcement to affirmative action in light of Fisher v. University of Texas. True to Dr. Alexander's legacy and mission, this year’s conference will feature scintillating debates, informative judicial panels, continuing legal education credit, and, as always, a diverse and exciting forum to discuss the most important issues of social justice
