Organizer

St. Mary's University School of Law & The Scholar: St. Mary's Law Review on Race and Social Justice

The Scholar: St Mary’s Law Review on Race and Social Justice is dedicated to fighting for the rights of legally disadvantaged and unrepresented minorities by exposing injustice and educating the legal community.  We are not afraid to confront taboo and controversial subjects because we recognize there are too many important rights, liberties, and livelihoods at stake to wait in silence for someone else to address them.  As Martin Niemöller famously stated in 1946:

They came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.  Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.  Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.

In addition to raising awareness about social injustice, The Scholar takes an active role by helping those in need in our immediate community—often the very people that fill the pages of our Law Review.  While The Scholar has always brought a “voice to the voiceless,” we now bring food to the hungry, homes to the homeless, and hope to the hopeless.

We hope our contributions to legal discussions and our surrounding community will foster optimism of a brighter future and a better understanding of all the wonderfully unique individuals, groups, and classes that comprise our society today.
