LAW 653 - Advanced Critical Race Theory

Students will participate along with faculty in the law school's weekly Critical Race Studies Workshop. Every week we will discuss a work-in-progress.  These works will be presented scholars across disciplines, including professors in law, social sciences, and the humanities.  Students will write two-page reaction papers 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.

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 60% on the papers, 30% on class participation, and 10% on attendance.
