Alternate curriculum #3

TNH 2.137, Autsin, Texas

The alternative curriculum series returns for another semester at the University of Texas School of Law. Presented by Law Student for Black Lives and ACS, this series explores standard doctrinal law classes from an anti-racism perspective and considers perspectives often absent from the standard law school curriculum.

Professor Jennifer Laurin studies and writes about how law and institutional design shape the functioning of criminal justice institutions. Her scholarship has considered, the role of constitutional litigation in regulating police, the shared roles of courts, police, and lawyers in regulating forensic science, and oversight of indigent defense. Professor Laurin will present the alternative curriculum on criminal law.
