“Law and Rurality” Professional Development Panel

Sat, 6/1: 12:45 PM - 2:30 PM

Danielle Conway, University of Maine Law School

Lisa Pruitt, UC Davis School of Law

Maybell Romero, Northern Illinois University College of Law

Michele Statz, University of Minnesota

Kathryne Young, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Why isn't there a closer connection between law and society and rural studies, and what kind of scholarship is most needed to bridge the gap? This professional development panel will be a continuation of the Law and Rurality Workshop held at UC Davis in February, at which scholars presented a diverse collection of working papers at the intersection of rurality, space, and the law. This conversation will showcase scholars' continuing work at this intersection, but will also more broadly discuss the future of space and rurality studies in law and society.
