Special Topics in Law: Critical Perspectives on Race and Civil Rights Seminar - LAW 731

2 Hours

            This 2 unit seminar (which meets one afternoon a week) focuses on critical race theory, a recent movement that examines the relationship among race, racism, and the U.S. legal system.  The coverage is broad, including not only legislative and judicial decisions, but also the economics and social science of race, and the affective, or feeling, side of race relations.  Through this course and the readings, you will gain an overview of critical race theory and more intensive exposure to certain subtopics, such as the role of history, race and sexuality, colorblindness, stereotyping, crime, and protest rights.
