Center for Race and Law

Understanding American law requires an understanding of the impact of race. Established in 2022 under the leadership of St. John's Law Professor Renee Nicole Allen, the Center for Race and Law provides opportunities for students, academics, practitioners, and community members to examine race and engage in idea exchange about its intersection with the law through lectures, symposia, dialogue, and scholarship. It also promotes learning and broad engagement through social media and coordinates the Law School’s race and law resources and curriculum. 

In this inaugural year, the Center looks forward to welcoming its first student fellows as they support a range of Center activities and initiatives. Looking ahead, the Center will organize and host its first symposium in Spring 2023 and build a network of St. John's Law and wider community stakeholders.
