Our Commitment To Racial Justice
Justice and equity serve as foundations to the Case Western Reserve University School of Law community. We continue to evolve our program of legal education to more effectively integrate racial justice more comprehensively into the curriculum, advocate for law reform at local and national levels and foster a more equitable, inclusive and welcoming environment in both the law school and our community.
This webpage contains news items, upcoming and recent events, and links to information about those efforts and online resources for members of our community who seek to combat racial and social injustice. For the most up to date information about what the Law School is doing to pursue these goals please visit our Race and Justice FAQs.
