Savannah Law Review to Host Colloquium, [Re]Integrating Spaces, September 19th and 20th

In the summer of 2014, Savannah Law School completed its comprehensive restoration of the historic Candler Hospital on Forsyth Park. What was once old and neglected is now preserved and revitalized. The Savannah brick and stucco edifice now rests on a new foundation—the meaning of the space changed once more. The building is at once both old and new.

Please join us for [Re]Integrating Spaces, a colloquium inspired by the transformation of the old Candler Hospital into the Savannah Law School. Author and Southern legal history scholar Alfred Brophy of the University of North Carolina School of Law will keynote this two-day event. [Re]Integrating Spaces will feature a host of national scholars and local practitioners at what promises to be a very exciting event in the legal community. The full list of presenters include:

Anthony Baker (Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School); Alfred Brophy (University of North Carolina School of Law); Stephen Clowney (University of Arkansas College of Law); Lia Epperson (American University Washington College of Law); Elizabeth Glazer (Hofstra University Law School); Jamila Jefferson-Jones (Barry University School of Law); Adam G. Kirk, Esq. (HunterMaclean); Kali Murray (Marquette University Law School); Connie Pinkerton (Savannah College of Art and Design); Marc Poirier (Seton Hall School of Law); Amanda Reid (Florida Coastal School of Law); Marc Roark (Savannah Law School); Caprice Roberts (Savannah Law School); & Jeffrey Schmitt (Florida Coastal School of Law).
