Critical Race Studies Program: Think. Teach. Transform.
The mission of the Critical Race Studies program is to:
think new ideas
teach future leaders and scholars and
transform racial justice advocacy.
The only program of its kind in the United States, UCLA Law’s Critical Race Studies (CRS) program is the premier institutional setting for the study of the intersection between race and the law. Anchored by renowned scholars whose research represents the cutting edge of critical race theory in legal scholarship and related disciplines, our CRS program has no parallel in American legal education.
The cornerstone of the program is an academic course of study, the CRS specialization, which attracts the top students committed to racial justice scholarship and legal practice. Established in 2000, the specialization quickly emerged as a training ground for a new generation of practitioners, scholars and advocates.
The CRS program augments coursework with research colloquia, symposia, interdisciplinary collaborations and community partnerships in order to integrate theory and practice.
