2016 National Student Symposium - "Poverty, Inequality, and the Law"

The Federalist Society of the University of Virginia School of Law is excited to host the 35th National Student Symposium on February 26-27, 2016.

On the topic of poverty, liberals claim the moral high ground. Their response includes federal and local interventions including entitlements, higher taxes, and a generally bigger and more active government. Despite liberals' insistence to the contrary, conservatives and libertarians also care about the poor, but they have their own ideas about how to lift people out of poverty. This symposium will explore these ideas.
