Journal Turns Twenty-Five

by vicki sanders

Alumni Invited to Help Celebrate

Editors of the Boston College Third World Law Journal are hoping to attract alumni to a 25th anniversary celebration of the publication on March 11. The occasion will include a day-long symposium at the Law School and a dinner honoring Ruth-Arlene Howe ’74, one of the journal’s founding faculty.

Alumni with connections to the Third World Journal, which began as the Black Law Journal, are especially welcome to “Black Children and Their Families in the Twenty-First Century: Surviving the America Nightmare or Living a Dream Deferred?” The gathering will look at how, when one group dominates another in society, the mechanisms of that domination and its victims become invisible. The symposium begins at 9 a.m.

Panelists include David Hall of Northeastern University School of Law; Twila L.
Perry-Rutgers of the State University of New Jersey Center for Law and Justice; Steven H. Hobbes, the Tom Bevill Chair at the University of Alabama School of Law; Michele Goodwin, director of the Health Law Institute at DePaul University College of Law; Zanita E. Fenton of Wayne State University Law School; and Angela Mae Kupenda of the Mississippi College School of Law.
