The law school will sponsor a five-part colloquium on law and social movements. Over the course of the academic year, the series will invite five pairs of lawyers and organizer-activists who collaborate with each other in the context of active social movements. Topics would range from immigrant rights, BLM, environmental justice, Trans justice, and other currently active social movements. We expect that students would learn about the substantive contexts of these areas of collective mobilization, the role of law in both impeding and encouraging the political activism of marginalized people, and the ways in which lawyers are working in support of such mobilizations. Faculty advisors are Professors Sameer Ashar, Annie Lai, Kaaryn Gustafson, and Seth Davis. http://www.law.uci.edu/events/law-social-movements-colloquium/

Song Richardson, Interim Dean at UC Irvine School of Law. UCI Law's Prof. Goodwin, Prof. Hasen and Alisa Hartz '12 are also scheduled to speak on panels.
