Code of Conduct

We hope that conference attendees who join us for the weekend will adhere to the following principles of inclusion and respect that draw in large part from the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Conference:
During the Q&A portion of panels and the participation portion of workshops, please be aware of your influence on other attendees and on your space. Please do not inhibit the ability of other attendees to participate in panels and workshops. Consider whether your comments leave enough time for others to speak, and whether you may cause others to feel attacked or isolated. Be aware of power dynamics such as race, gender, and class that have historically encouraged some to speak up and discouraged others from speaking, and please compensate for these power dynamics when participating in shared spaces.
Respect service and facilities staff members who work for the law school. They help make the conference run. Please acknowledge the work they put into the conference and thank them when they provide you with assistance.
Please refrain from recording RebLaw speakers and attendees during the conference. 
Please help us maintain clear walkways in all conference spaces and avoid sitting on the floor near exits.
Workshop monitors may close the doors of a session once it is at capacity for safety and access reasons. Please respect our community safety and accessibility needs by not entering a session once it is full.
Please be scent/fragrance-free to the extent that you are able to, so that beloved community members with chemical sensitivities can attend the conference. We know that scented products, including essential oils, perfumes, and hair products, can be an important part of one’s identity, and we don’t require you to refrain from using those products. However, we ask all participants who will be in shared conference spaces over the weekend to recognize how using certain products can create access barriers for others wishing to use the same spaces.
Because flashing lights can trigger seizures or other symptoms, we ask that you avoid wearing or carrying decorative flashing lights and avoid flash photography. If you must use a flash, please check with people around you first. Please do not flash overhead lights on and off in any conference spaces.
Smoking is only permitted in designated smoking areas. Please smoke outside of the law school on Wall Street at least 25 feet away from the front archway of the law school.
