Course Description

This colloquium offers students the chance to engage with leading scholars exploring law’s relationship to inequality. In each session we will discuss a current work of legal scholarship on inequality, first as a class, then in the following session with the author as our guest. Interested UVA law faculty will also be invited to attend. Students will leave the class having grappled with the most up-to-date research on topics involving law’s role in reinforcing or challenging various forms of inequality, such as race, class, gender and sexuality, disability and their intersections.
