Law 798: Racial Justice Practicum
This one-week intensive course will survey issues of race and inequality in several substantive legal areas: civil rights, employment discrimination, immigration, housing, healthcare, criminal justice and more. Each topic will be taught as a module by a guest lecturer who is an expert in the field. With a focus on both legal doctrine and policy, this course is designed to prepare students for the range of issues they will encounter in their summer placements and future careers as agents of socio-legal and racial justice.
