Description: This is a follow-up conference from the February 2017 Summit in Orlando. The purpose of this conference is to give legal scholars an opportunity to engage in further in-depth conversation, dialogue and critique of the issues, potential policy approaches, and framing of the area of early childhood.

On Friday April 6, there will be a full day workshop focusing on the legal issues surrounding early childhood from an interdisciplinary perspective. The Provost may be there to welcome the participants. The workshop will take place in the faculty lounge.

The workshop will bring together distinguished legal scholars and UF Law faculty, together with representatives of the other three UF colleges who participated in the Early Childhood Summit.
