Black Lawyers Matter 2021 Conference – October 15
September 20, 2021
Building on the success of the inaugural Black Lawyers Matter 2020, convened by the University of Houston Law Center and SMU’s Dedman School of Law, this year’s conference examines how law schools’ and legal employers’ cultures, structures, and practices may better contribute to inclusive lawyer formation. Understanding that the process of formation extends from enrollment through graduation and into practice, the conference will explore best practices for legal educators and employers to help individuals succeed along the journey. Unless and until this entire journey is unified in an anti-racist approach, the legal profession will not only fail to mirror the diversity of society, but also fail to garner respect as a “justice” system.
This conference encourages and supports legal educators and employers in focusing on reforms that will help minoritized students thrive during law school and in their careers. We hope you can join us. Please feel free to extend this invitation to others in the legal community who may be interested.
When: Friday, October 15, 2021 – 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET
