APRIL 11: Join the Reclaiming Legal Education Virtual Workshop on Saturday, April 11
Join the Harvard Law & Political Economy Association for a virtual kickoff of the Reclaiming Legal Education project, which will be held via Zoom video on Saturday, April 11 at 12 pm EDT.
This project is led by students at law schools around the country (and world) who are collaborating over the summer and fall to create a robust cases and materials book inspired by this past year’s Alternative Curriculum Syllabus
, which was compiled by Harvard LPE members. The goal is to produce a curated set of resources to help faculty and law students introduce law and political economy, critical race theory, and other critical perspectives into the 1L curriculum and other foundational legal courses.
Longtime LPE blog contributor Sabeel Rahman will give opening remarks to start Saturday’s event before organizers discuss the goals and approach of the Reclaiming Legal Education project. Participants will then join virtual breakout rooms based on their interests, where they will hear from the organizers of working groups focused on subjects including Torts, Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Property, Corporations, Administrative Law, Criminal Law, and many more.
APRIL 13: LPE and COVID-19
The LPE Project is excited to be co-sponsoring a virtual event with Amy Kapczynski and David Grewal on how the LPE approach can help us understand and respond to the cascading crises caused by COVID-19, as well as build a more just and equitable future.
The event, organized by the Berkeley Network for a New Political Economy, will take place virtually on Monday, April 13th at 5pm EDT (2pm PDT). Please RSVP here to be sent instructions on how to access the Zoom.
We hope you can join!
