Center on Applied Feminism

The Center on Applied Feminism serves as a bridge between feminist legal theory and the law.

Unique within the legal academy, the Center seeks to apply feminist insights to legal practice

and the policy arena. In particular, the Center will examine how feminist theory can benefit legal practitioners in representing clients, shape legal doctrine, and play a role in policy debates and implementation. The Center has faculty affiliates from throughout the University.

The Center on Applied Feminism sponsors an annual scholarly symposium on feminist legal theory that is anchored by a prominent featured speaker.

The University of Baltimore School of Law’s Center on Applied Feminism seeks submissions for its Eighth Annual Feminist Legal Theory Conference.  This year’s theme is “Applied Feminism and Work.”  The conference will be held on March 5 and 6, 2015.  The Keynote Speaker this year is EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum.
