Editor’s Note: In the wake of protests against police brutality and systemic racism across the country, we ran a story compiling statements from a number of law deans emphasizing the legal profession’s responsibility to seek justice and lead the way toward reform. However, we did not include any statements from black law deans. We should have.
On June 11, the Association of American Law Schools launched the Law Deans Antiracist Clearinghouse Project, curated by Boston University School of Law Dean Angela Onwuachi-Willig, Rutgers Law School Dean Kimberly Mutcherson, Washburn University School of Law Carla D. Pratt, Howard University School of Law Dean Danielle Holley-Walker and Penn State Dickinson Law Dean Danielle M. Conway. The project’s goal, according to its website, is to establish commitment to “a sustained Antiracist agenda,” beginning with “The Listening Phase”: “Before we begin to lead as a group in working to address systemic racism, it is critical to listen to the voices of Black deans, indigenous deans, and other deans personally impacted by police violence.”
