Upcoming: Elevating and Engaging with Black Lives on Law School Campuses (Part II)
Please join us for this live event, August 12, 8:00-9:30 PM ET
On June 30, 2020, ACS, Professor Michele Goodwin, and the National Black Law Students Association presented "Elevating and Engaging with Black Lives on Law School Campuses." During this dynamic discussion, our speakers discussed the tragic killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd; the response on law school campuses; and the need for a better aligned curriculum that takes seriously how the law engages with Black lives across the spectrum of discourses, as well as the need for more professors of color at America's law schools.
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. So much so, So much so, that ACS, Professor Michele Goodwin, and the National Black Law Student Association are hosting a Elevating and Engaging with Black Lives on Law School Campuses (Part II) to continue the discussion. Join us to elevate the concerns of students, recent alumni, professors, law school administrators, and staff, and to share their perspectives, stories, and experiences.
