Webinar title screen Justice Hour June 30

The U.S. Supreme Court recently delivered two decisions with indelible impact for LGBTQIA+ and undocumented individuals in the United States, and perhaps broader implications for our country and the rule of law. In the span of four days, we received two majority decisions — written by some of the Court’s more conservative justices — that preserved, at least for now, the ability of some of our nation’s most marginalized groups to work and live with less fear. 

On Tuesday, June 30, we hosted a live stream presentation by Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, about these two cases, what they mean, why they matter, and what might be coming next.

The AALS Law Deans Antiracist Clearinghouse Project

Webinar title screen Justice Hour June 22

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.

On Monday, June 22, we hosted a live stream discussion with a panel of law school deans who are working to create a space for our collective voices to engage their institutions in the fight for justice. 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.
