Advancement Project National Office and Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center at Howard University School of Law invite you to continue the conversation from Fall 2019’s Inaugural Movement Lawyering Conference.

In response to the successful Movement Lawyering Conference put on by Advancement Project National Office, Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center and Law for Black Lives, we invite you to submit articles for publication in what will be a special issue in the Fifth Volume of the Howard Human & Civil Rights Law Review dedicated entirely to movement lawyering.

Articles should be a maximum of 15,000 words, including footnotes. Shorter entries are encouraged. We are also open to creative and non-traditional entries. Authors are invited to submit an abstract of no longer than 250 words.
