Hofstra Law School Hosts Panel on Title IX

From the law school's web site:
Hofstra Law School will host a panel discussion “Sticky Cultural Norms: The Transformative Potential of Title IX” on April 30 at 12:10 pm at the Law School. The discussion is sponsored by Hofstra Law School’s Institute for the Study of Gender, Law and Policy and is being held in honor of the 35th anniversary of Title IX, the law that bans sex discrimination in federally funded programs.

Presenters include Deborah Brake, University of Pittsburgh School of Law; Erin Buzuvis, Western New England School of Law; and Verna Williams, University of Cincinnati School of Law. A variety of topics will be discussed including: the feminist legacy of this historic law and whether Title IX is an example of successful law reform that has transformed women’s roles in society or whether it merely papered over sexist cultural norms that are resistant to change. The panel will be moderated by Joanna L. Grossman, Hofstra Law School Professor of Law and co-director of the Institute for the Study of Gender, Law and Policy. One CLE credit is available for this event.
