SALT Social Justice in Action series: Anti-Racist Hiring Practices

by Professor Brooks Holland, Gonzaga Law School

The Society of American Law Teachers has been proud to share its four-part Fall 2020 Social Justice in Action webinar series. This webinar program already has presented leaders in the field to address anti-racism values and practices in three specific contexts, including anti-racism in the core law school curriculum, equity and inclusion in online legal education, and anti-racist work for the long-haul. Approximately 500 people attended these first three webinars, and many more have since viewed them on SALT’s website.

The fourth installment of SALT’s webinar series will take place on October 16, 2020 at 12:00pm PT and 3:00pm ET, and it will address one of the most important influences we as educators have on the future of higher education and the legal profession: our hiring practices. We all know that law school and higher education hiring practices is one of the areas where we most struggle to fulfill our commitment to diversity and antiracist values. To explore how we better can fulfill this commitment, SALT is honored to present three highly respected leaders in legal education to share their perspectives on anti-racist values and practices in the recruitment and retention of faculty, staff, and administrators:

Tamara F. Lawson, Dean, St. Thomas University School of Law

Angela Onwuachi-Willig, Dean, Boston University School of Law

Sean M. Scott, President and Dean, California Western University School of Law
