The 2011 San Francisco Rights Conference has concluded. It was a big success. Thanks to President Robert Corrigan, Provost Sue Rosser, Dean Gail Evans, Dean Paul Sherwin, and former dean Joel Kassiola for their support. Without their commitment to our success we could not have acomplished so much.

You can listen to an interesting conversation between Christopher Waldrep and Eva Sheppard Wolf about Jury Discrimination.
