Symposium Examines the Relationship between Prostitution and the Legal System on April 9

From the Streets to the Courts:
Examining the Relationship between Prostitution and the Legal System

Wednesday, April 9, 2008
6-7:30 p.m.
Ceremonial Court Room

The many dangers to the health and safety of those involved in prostitution are well documented but does our legal system provide adequate resources to help these vulnerable people? Join the University of Maryland's School of Law Students Supporting the Women's Law Center [SSWLC] as they present an engaging panel discussion, From the Streets to the Courts: Examining the Relationship between Prostitution and the Legal System.

The dialogue, moderated by Baltimore Sun reporter Jonathan Bor, will explore how Maryland's legal system serves individuals involved in prostitution and consider possible improvements to the current system. Expert panelists include Judge Charlotte Cooksey of the Prostitution Reform Court; Sidney Ford, Executive Director of You Are Never Alone [YANA]; and a YANA friend.

Admission is free and open to the public. It is not necessary to RSVP. All attendees are welcome to mingle at reception immediately following the discussion.

Please contact sswlc@law.umaryland.edu for more information about the discussion or SSWLC.
