About this Event
85 Park Place N.E., Atlanta, GA
This year's State of the South Conference this year will look at the relationship between physical location and one’s ability to access courts, equality, and justice. The conference will examine some of the various ways in which our substantive and procedural rights have become location-dependent and discuss ways to increase access to courts, justice, and equality despite these regional and state-based disparities. Alicia Bannon, the editor of State Court Report and Director of the Brennan Center for Justice's Judiciary Program, will be the keynote.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
