On Friday, October 12, 2012, from 3-5 pm, Harvard Law School, in conjunction with unbound: Harvard Journal of the Legal Left, will be hosting a symposium titled Law, Peace, and Violence: An Interdisciplinary approach. I believe this is the first time that legal scholars will convene to specifically work on introducing peace principles into legal method. Members of the symposium include Carrie Menkel-Meadow, of Georgetown/UC Irving Law, Julie Mertus, of American U Law, Allegra McLeod, of Georgetown Law, Tucker Culbertson, of Syracuse Law, Angela Harris, of U.C. Davis, and Yxta Maya Murray, of Loyola Law School, L.A.

We will be discussing the legacies of Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, and considering how their work, as well as that of Gene Sharp, Johan Galtung, Robert Cover, and Nancy Scheper-Hughes and Philippe Bourgois, can help shape the law into an instrument of peace. We'll be tackling war, environmental destruction, poverty, criminal justice, and slavery, among other topics. I invite you to our symposium out of recognition to your dedication to peacework.
