Diversity Forum: Cancelled Due to Snow

February 9, 2010, 12:00pm – 1:30pm
Room 275, Brandeis School of Law, University of Louisville
Sponsored by: Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, Black Law Students Association, Student Bar Association, Women's Law Caucus

The next program in our Diversity Forum Series will focus on the benefits of diversity in the judiciary and what's being done to encourage diversity on the bench.

  • Why did it make a difference that these women were on the bench?
  • What were/are the obstacles for African American women on the Jefferson County bench?
  • What has changed during their tenure?
  • What lessons can they impart to students who aspire to a career on the bench? 

This forum will also address "Pipeline Programs", like the Central High School Law Magnet Program, and their effect on creating chances for interested "diverse" students to excel academically and eventually go on to law school. 

Marque Carey will moderate and food will be provided by Expressions of You.
