Symposium: The Legal Heritage of the Civil War

Northern Kentucky University's Chase College of Law is holding a symposium on The Legal Heritage of the Civil War, October 22, 2011.
The Civil War changed the fabric of the United States as a nation and also led to a number of landmark legal developments. These developments have had wide-reaching impacts on both national and international levels. The legal influence of the Civil War era can be seen in a number of areas of modern law, include the U.S. monetary system, the rise of federal power, military trials of terrorists, and the laws of war.

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Chase College of Law and the Northern Kentucky Law Review will host its Fall Symposium on the Legal Heritage of the Civil War on October 22, 2011. The Symposium is an opportunity for academics, practitioners, and students to exchange ideas and explore current legal issues that originate from the Civil War era. The Northern Kentucky Law Review invites you to attend this unique Symposium as the crossroads of history and modern law are explored.

The symposium will be held in the Student Union Ballroom at Northern Kentucky University, in Highland Heights, Kentucky. Contact them here to register or for more information.
