Critical Foundations Series: Sociology of Law with Professor Jonathan Simon

Thursday, September 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Is it just me, or…?

Nope, it’s not just you: the law can be used to advance social justice but it has also reproduced patriarchy, white supremacy, privilege, and normative boundaries to equity. Join us for Critical Foundations, a lecture trio that helps you identify exclusionary problems in the law and imagine alternatives

Critical Foundations builds on Core in Context by introducing students to feminist legal theory, critical race theory, and the history and sociology of law–that is, essential concepts that critique the status quo. Students leave these talks with a deeper understanding of how to bring social justice insight and energy to any legal question, and with exposure to professors whose classes they may not be taking.

Lunch will be served outside of room 170 starting at 12:40 PM.
