The Syracuse Law Review is pleased to announce our 2023 Symposium on Education Access and Opportunity.

Education access has become a prominent legal issue in recent years. In two recent decisions which will greatly impact the field of higher education, the Supreme Court overturned race-based affirmative action policies and struck down the Biden administration’s student debt relief program. Controversies over academic freedom in public school curricula and the consequences of inequitable funding have renewed questions of students’ civil and constitutional rights—or the lack thereof. And the proliferation of online instruction accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic has created both opportunities and challenges for students and educators. These developments raise an urgent question: How do we promote education access within this new landscape? Through this Symposium, we seek to analyze the legal implications of this historic moment and to produce a document which may prospectively guide scholars, policymakers, educators, and other interested stakeholders.

All students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the public are welcome to attend. Please check back to this page for more details ahead of the event date.
