We are very excited about this series, which aims to highlight new experiential approaches to teaching justice in the classroom. Each session will draw on the wisdom of the current resistance movement and examine its intersections with criminal justice, immigration policy, racial justice, and economic justice, among other issues. This series will explore the theory behind experiential faculty’s decision-making processes during a politically fraught era, asking the question, “How do we show up as lawyers and teachers?” Presenters also hope to develop a shared vocabulary and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a lawyer, whether we consider ourselves movement lawyers, rebellious lawyers, or transformative lawyers.
Later this semester, we’ll hear from Annie Lai, Clinical Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Immigrant Rights Clinic. Annie will present on Teaching Justice in the Context of Immigrants’ Rights on .
The series will continue into 2019 with presentations from Deborah Archer, Associate Professor of Clinical Law and Director of the Civil Rights Clinic at NYU School of Law, and Eve Hanan, Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic at UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law. More details to follow, posted on the CLEA Website. Please share far and wide!
