Welcome to the University of Baltimore Law Review’s first issue dedicated entirely to articles from the Center on Applied Feminism’s Feminist Legal Theory Conference. It is with great enthusiasm for this new collaboration and the Conference itself that I write this foreword to the issue.

The Center on Applied Feminism serves as a bridge between feminist legal theory and the law. Unique within the legal academy, the Center seeks to apply feminist insights to legal practice and the policy arena. In particular, the Center examines how feminist theory can benefit legal practitioners in representing clients, shape legal doctrine, and play a role in policy debates and implementation. On March 30–31, 2011, the Center sponsored the Fourth Annual Feminist Legal Theory Conference: Applying Feminism Globally. The Conference brought together academics, practitioners, and activists from around the world to discuss such topics as Global Perspectives on Women’s Bodies, Health, and Reproduction; Women, Work and Socioeconomic Rights in the Global Economy; Women in Combat and Conflict – and Consequences; and Feminist Activism Around the World.
