Weekend Roundup

  • From the Consumer Law & Policy Blog: historical perspectives on the Supreme Court's current Fair Housing Act case (here and here). (Hat tip: Torts Today)
  • From Inside Higher Ed: A law school vice dean tells students that the historical record could do without the gender biased comments they have been leaving in female professors' teaching evaluations ("If you have any doubts that posterity will somehow muddle through without the benefit of your fashion advice, allow me to dispel them once and for all”). 
  • The Georgetown Journal of Law & Modern Critical Race Perspectives is hosting the conference The Moynihan Report: 50 Years Later, Thursday, February 5, 2015, 10AM to 4PM, Gewirz Student Center, 12th Floor, Georgetown University Law Center.  Speakers include my GULC colleagues Paul Butler, Anthony Cook and Gary Peller, as well as Donald Tibbs, Drexel University, and Justin Hansford, St. Louis University.  DRE
