Aoki Center 1L Speaker Series

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Aug 31, 2017


I attended a lunchtime session of the Aoki Center on Race and Nation Studies 1L speaker series.  Professor Jack Chin (above) talked about the racial impacts of the criminal justice system.  Professor Lisa Pruitt discussed Critical Race Theory and torts. We had a full house of first-year students.  Also delivering remarks was Professor Mary Louise Frampton, Director of the Aoki Center (below).

The speaker series is designed to discuss how the subjects taught in the first year curriculum have race and civil rights impacts.  Our students are lucky indeed to have experts willing to talk on critically important civil rights issues in all areas of the law.
