Publication Celebration Event: May 1, 2017

The University of Washington Education Law and Policy Review will be celebrating publication of volume 3 on Monday, May 1, in room 115 at UW Law School.


We will have an early evening reception (5:00 PM start time) with appetizers and printed books available.

We also plan to have a point-counter-point set of presentations from two of this year’s authors. Mathew Manweller will discuss “The Major Mistake of McCleary,” and Kathryn Russell Selk and Summer Stinson will discuss “McCleary: Myths and Realities.”

Please join us as we honor this year’s authors and commemorate three years of grass-roots, student-editing efforts.
