The fall semester has just gotten underway at many law schools, but some professors are setting their traditional lessons aside Tuesday and Wednesday and focusing instead on racism and systemic injustice as part of a national higher education teaching strike.

A consortium of eight law schools led by Black women deans is embracing what has been dubbed the Scholar Strike for Racial Justice—a teach-in organized by University of Pennsylvania religious studies professor Anthea Bulter and Grand View University historian Kevin Gannon that has drawn hundreds of professor participants across the country and was inspired by professional athletes who recently went on strike in protest of racism. Faculty at those law schools have the choice to not teach Sept. 8 and 9; to devote their courses to discussions about systemic racism and how the law contributes to inequality; and to participate in a slate of online seminars centered on racial justice.
