LSAC Justice Hour: Featuring the AALS Law Deans Antiracist Clearinghouse Project

Event Type: Virtual Industry Event

The year 2020 will be known not only for the COVID-19 pandemic that swept across the globe but also for the antiracist protests that focused attention on police brutality and the unjustified killings of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, and far too many others whom were taken from us way too soon. All of us in legal education, among many hundreds of thousands of people and institutions, are asking what we can do to stop the killing of black people and dismantle institutional racism.

The AALS Law Deans Antiracist Clearinghouse Project strives to focus teaching, scholarship, service, activism, programming, and initiatives on strategies to eradicate racism and the resulting racial subordination it has created. Learn more about this project, the resources curated for learning, and the actions law schools can take to lead the charge for true racial equality in legal education and the profession.

This event was moderated by Kristin Theis-Alvarez, dean of admissions and financial aid at University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, and Tracy L. Simmons, assistant dean of admissions and financial aid at McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific.

Joining the discussion were:

  • Angela Onwuachi-Willig, Boston University School of Law 
  • Carla D. Pratt, Washburn University School of Law
  • Danielle M. Conway, The Pennsylvania State University, Dickinson Law 

This engaging one-hour discussion included a Q&A period at the end.
