Conference Schedule

Our conference theme— MAPLA 2022 Together Again: Reclaiming and Reframing—celebrates our first in-person conference since the onset of COVID-19. Our conference theme also recognizes how the world and our roles have changed, and acknowledges that our meeting will be in Minneapolis, the epicenter of social, political, and legal transformation following the murder of George Floyd.
