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.

- ELPS will only host one general body meeting per quarter for all members during the lunch period.
- Dates are to be determined after we receive sufficient responses from our members regarding their availability
Board Meetings (approximately 9 meetings, no more than 1.5 hours each)
- Board meetings will be held once per month or up to twice per month prior to our conference and journal launch event. Depending on the team’s ability to organize work effectively, the number of meeting might or might not increase.
“Washington Education Law and Policy Review” Launch Event
- 2-3 ELPS members will present briefly on their journal articles and 1 guest speaker will talk about one education issue raised in our journal or blog (this was Justice Yu last year). We are hoping to secure a speaker of the same stature for this upcoming year.
Forces of Change Conference
- This year we held this conference during diversity week. The Forces of Change Mini-Conference: Recognizing Racial Barriers to Education was a success this year. Please visit our website for more information.

In 2015, we published our first issue of the Washington Journal of Education Law and Policy. Since the publication is in its initial stages, 1Ls are permitted to serve in the editorial staff. The first issue included articles and comments authored by Law Professor Sarah Kaltsounis, UW law students, graduate students and educators.
