Symposium on the Scholarship of Sherry Colb: September 29 at Rutgers-Newark and co-sponsored by the Cornell Law Review

 by Michael C. Dorf

On Friday September 29, 2023, the Rutgers Law School and the Cornell Law Review will co-host a one-day symposium commemorating and exploring the scholarship of Sherry Colb. The symposium will take place at the Rutgers-Newark Law School. The day's events will feature papers and discussion by three panels of distinguished faculty from Rutgers, Cornell, and around the country, focusing on and inspired by Sherry's work in: criminal procedure; feminist jurisprudence; and animal rights. The papers will ultimately be published in the Cornell Law Review.

Sherry was a beloved member of the Rutgers law faculty from 1993 to 2008 (for the first two years at Camden and then at Newark) and the Cornell law faculty from 2008 until her death in 2022 (interrupted by stints as a visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia law schools). 

In the coming weeks and months, the other organizers of the symposium and I will launch a website and provide additional details. For now, consider this a save-the-date announcement for what we expect to be a fitting tribute to Sherry's many important contributions to legal scholarship.
