UCLA Law Review Symposium: Toward an Abolitionist Future

January 28, 2022 - January 29, 2022 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The UCLA Law Review invites the UCLA Law School community to join us online for our 2022 Symposium, Toward an Abolitionist Future. The Symposium will focus on the question of what is an abolitionist future and what it takes to get there. The UCLA Law Review aims to facilitate thought-provoking discussions around the role of law, legal thinking and lawyers in an abolitionist future.


The Symposium will center discussions on the following themes: Law and Legal Institutions: Impediments to Change; Abolition and Community; Abolition, Pleasure and Vice; Reimagining Public Society; The Global Move Toward Abolition; and Abolition and Technology. The Symposium will feature a talk with Derecka Purnell about her new book, Becoming Abolitionists, and a discussion on abolition and LA with Patrisse Cullors.
