On Thursday March 11th the University of Arkansas Little Rock Law Review will be hosting a symposium focusing on prisoners’ rights. I will be appearing on the panel addressing prisoners’ rights and international law.
The symposium will feature three panels throughout the day, each focusing on different issues surrounding prisoners’ rights.
- Domestic Prisoners’ Rights – Members of this panel will examine the rights of prisoners in our domestic prison system, and will discuss topics ranging from prison conditions, to the kinds of educational and health access prisoners should be afforded.
- International Prisoners’ Rights – The second panel of the day will focus on international prisoners’ rights issues, including the differences in treatment between domestic and foreign prisoners, and how the international community should treat child soldier prisoners.
- Women Prisoners’ Rights – The final panel of the day will discuss prisoners’ rights as how they pertain specifically to women, including the problem of sexual abuse of women prisoners, a female prisoner’s right to an abortion, and health care concerns involving pregnant prisoners.
