King Hall's Racial Justice Speaker Series

As protests over police brutality and systemic racism have swept the nation, UC Davis School of Law has reaffirmed its longtime commitment to racial justice. Throughout 2021-22, the law school is offering a Racial Justice Speaker Series examining some of the most urgent issues facing our nation and world today.

The series has gathered leading voices on civil rights, criminal justice, and civic and governmental responsibility. The goals are to inform, enlighten, and -- most important -- engage in meaningful conversation with our King Hall community and the larger public.
