Judgments Judged, Wrongs Remembered: Examining the Japanese American Civil Liberties Cases of World War II

On December 18, 1944, the United States Supreme Court decided the landmark cases of Korematsu v. United States, which allowed the forced eviction of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans from their homes, and Ex parte Endo, which forbade the continued incarceration of loyal American citizens.

To mark the 60th anniversary of these cases, this conference will provide an opportunity to reflect on the meaning, legacy, and continued relevance of these cases in today's world. The conference features:

  • Direct participants in the legal cases—litigants, lawyers, and judicial clerks
  • Leading historians and legal scholars who will speak on the subject of the incarceration
  • Discussion among a panel of five children of the men who challenged the incarceration program in court
  • Keynote address by the Honorable A. Wallace Tashima, a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
  • A reading by Holly Yasui, daughter of Supreme Court litigant Minoru Yasui, and a dance piece interpreting the experiences of those who challenged the incarceration of Japanese Americans by Jay Hirabayashi, son of Supreme Court litigant and draft resister Gordon Hirabayashi

To register for this conference, please visit www.janm.org or call 213.830.5625. Registration deadline is September 30, 2004.

Special Opportunity for California Attorneys: 5.75 hours of California MCLE credit will be awarded for attending the November 6, 2004 session.

Sponsored by the United States-Japan Foundation, Takata, University of North Carolina School of Law, UCLA Asian-American Studies Center, Civil Liberties Public Education Program, and Mr. H. Jay Shaffer.
