    Alternative Curriculum Ses.2: Contracts

    We wanted to introduce a series of events that LS4BL hosts in partnership with ACS called our Alternative Curriculum Racial Justice Series. This series was created especially for 1Ls, and it's one filled with professor networking, lively discussions, and fun prizes.

    These are hour-long discussions attempting to integrate principles of racial justice into the 1L core curriculum. The discussions seek not only to shed light on the extent of the permeation of racial inequalities in every aspect of the law, but to equip law students with the necessary tools to speak up in class, ponder hard topics, and work to change the culture of our law school curriculum at large.

    Each discussion is centered on one of the six 1L courses and is facilitated by a professor who is both knowledgeable in the subject and demonstrates a commitment to racial justice. Note: Every attendee will be entered into a drawing to receive a free LS4BL t-shirt and gift card! The more sessions you attend, the more entries you receive for the drawing!
