WA: Hirabayashi v. United States 25th anniversary conference

11 Feb

The Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality will host a major conference commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Ninth Circuit opinion in the Hirabayashi v. United States coram nobis case. The conference will celebrate the late Gordon Hirabayashi’s courage in resisting military orders that imposed curfews on Japanese Americans and ordered them to report for incarceration; reflect on his 1943 Supreme Court case that upheld his convictions and the extraordinary work of his legal team in reopening of his case nearly 40 years later; and use his case as a springboard to move forward in the struggle for civil rights. Admission for members of the general public is free; admission for attorneys wishing CLE credits is $50 for 5.25 credits. There is no charge for CLE credits for Seattle University School of Law faculty and staff. All participants must register. Info: Junsen Ohno, Korematsu Center Administrator, (206) 398-4283, ohnoj@seattleu.edu.
