On October 15 and 16, 1971, the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law sponsored a School Finance Litigation Conference in Washington, D.C., to consider both the short-range and long-range goals and strategies of school finance litigation, in the wake of Serrano v. Priest. At this conference, over 100 people, mostly lawyers, discussed in plenary session the potential and problems of the emerging body of school finance litigation. Prior to the plenary session, a small group of about twenty people, many of whom had been actively involved in the conceptualization and/or institution of school finance litigation, met to discuss a number of approaches which they, as the leaders of the plenary session, would take in presenting their points of view to those attending that session.
