Teach-In for Racial Justice

In solidarity with the  Scholar Strike for Racial Justice and Teach-in on September 8 and 9, 2020, seven law schools organized and participated in the Law School Anti-Racist Coalition’s Teach-In. This virtual public teach-in covered such diverse topics as water rights in Indian Country, implementing anti-racist practices in legal education, and implicit bias in bankruptcy law. A number of the sessions were recorded and are available below as well as on our YouTube page.
