LSE, 9 May 2011
A conference reflecting on the implications of the Feminist Judgments Project, with sessions exploring the uses and potential of the project for critical scholarship, feminist activism, policy-making and teaching.
The Feminist Judgments Project has involved a group of legal academics and practitioners writing the ‘missing’ feminist judgments in a series of key cases in English law. The participants aim to show how feminist theory can be put into practice in judgment form, and to demonstrate that even at the time they were heard, and subject to all the constraints binding appellate judges, these cases could have been reasoned and decided differently.
Following the publication of Feminist Judgments: From Theory to Practice (Hart Publishing, 2010), this one-day conference is designed to reflect on the implications of the Feminist Judgments Project. Conference sessions will explore the uses and potential of the project for critical scholarship, feminist activism, policy-making and teaching. The conference will also feature the launch of a set of UKCLE-funded teaching materials developed from the project and designed to facilitate research-led teaching.
Speakers include: Vera Baird QC (barrister and former Solicitor-General), Brenna Bhandar (Kent), Beatrix Campbell (journalist and activist), Helen Carr (Kent), Sonia Harris-Short (Birmingham), Caroline Hunter (York), Troy Lavers (Leicester), Kate Malleson (Queen Mary), Clare McGlynn (Durham), Sue Millns (Sussex), Les Moran (Birkbeck), Pragna Patel (Southall Black Sisters), Anne Phillips (LSE Gender Institute), Sally Wheeler (QUB).
