Event description

Description

The Race of the Races symposium focuses on the inter-group and group-specific experiences of people of color under the law. Sociolegal scholars, practitioners, and community organizers have been invited to share their expertise on some of the most salient issues affecting communities of color—higher education, mass criminalization, and employment.

Given the recent presidential election, the Race of the Races symposium arrives at an especially critical time. We intend to steer our discussion towards finding opportunities for solidarity across different contexts—the Black Lives Matter movement, immigrant rights’ movement, anti-Islamophobia movement—and identifying what role(s) lawyers and law students can play in dismantling oppressive legal regimes.
