Navigating Law School by Engaging the Intersections of Critical Race, Queer, and Feminist Legal Theories
This interactive workshop will ask us to examine our own privileges in order to better empower ourselves and other women. By using these critical frameworks to recognize our differences we will attempt to map a law school experience that is not only accessible but also focuses on dismantling the current oppressive structures it perpetuates.
