About RebLaw

Every year the conference brings together practitioners, law students, and community activists from around the country to discuss innovative, progressive approaches to law and social change. The conference, grounded in the spirit of Gerald Lopez’s Rebellious Lawyering, seeks to build a community of law students, practitioners, and activists seeking to work in the service of social change movements and to challenge hierarchies of race, wealth, gender, and expertise within legal practice and education.

Yale Law School is wheelchair accessible. ASL Interpretation will be provided for select panels, and for others if requested with reasonable advance notice. Please note any access needs or other accommodation requests when you register.
