Inaugural California Lawyers Foundation’s Signature Speaker Series featuring Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of Berkeley Law School

January 14, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Presented by the California Lawyers Foundation. This program is co-sponsored by CLA’s Racial Justice Committee.

This webinar will examine the tragic failures of the Supreme Court over the last 150 years in protecting civil rights, particularly those of racial minorities. Even after the Court’s decision in Brown, American schools remain separate and unequal, voting rights are under attack after the Court struck down crucial provisions of a landmark civil rights statute, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, union rights remain under siege after the Court’s decision in Janus, and the Court has consistently empowered the police and subverted civil rights. Attendees will not only learn about this history, but the webinar will also assess the potential impacts of the recent addition of Justice Barrett to this legacy. Featuring Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of Berkeley Law School.
