Students will participate along with faculty in the law school's biweekly Critical Race Studies Workshop. Every other week we will discuss a work-in-progress presented by various authors, including professors in law, social sciences and humanities, each contributing to the interdisciplinary nature of CRT. Some of the presenters will be from UCLA; most will be from other universities. Students will write 4-5 page papers commenting on each of the works presented. The student papers will be given to the workshop presenters before each workshop. Students will be expected to be active participants in the workshop. An underlying thematic discussion that will be taken up in the weeks between workshops will relate to the Supreme Court case, Ozawa vs. United States.
Critical Race Theory is a prerequisite for this course. Priority enrollment is given to students who are in the Critical Race Studies Specialization. Grading will be based 50% on the papers and 50% on class participation.
