Affiliated Student Groups
The Ron Brown Center advises and supports numerous students at St. John’s Law. Two groups in particular are formally affiliated with the center: the Ronald H. Brown Scholars and the Coalition for Social Justice.
The Ronald H. Brown Scholars
The Ronald H. Brown Scholars (Ron Brown Scholars) are highly accomplished students who have overcome economic, social, or educational disadvantage in order to be part of St. John’s Law. Selected through a competitive process, these students work with the RHB Center to foster their interest in equality, social justice, and civil rights and to develop educational and career options during their years here.
Coalition for Social Justice
The Coalition for Social Justice is an alliance of law students, faculty members, and community leaders. It seeks to provide an inclusive and position space at St. John’s Law for discourse and disagreement about social injustice and inequality in all forms. The Coalition also hopes to be a force of change, and encourages the collaboration of many and the exploration of ideas. Its programming includes speakers, dialogues, film screenings, panels, field trips, and other initiatives.
