Teaching Justice Webinar Series
A project of the Best Practices Committee
What is the Teaching Justice Webinar Series?
Over the next year, the Teaching Justice Webinar series will feature a number of innovative faculty who will discuss new approaches to teaching justice in the classroom. Each session will draw on the wisdom of current resistance movement and examine its intersections with criminal justice, immigration policy, racial justice, economic justice, and international human rights, among other issues.
This series will explore the theory behind experiential faculty’s decision-making processes during an intense political movement, 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.
