UCI Law Dean L. Song Richardson in conversation with Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law Blake Morant
The United States constitutes a complex democracy, the tenets of which have been tested throughout its over 200-year history. Events this year including the pandemic, the country’s reckoning with anti-Blackness and racism, and a turbulent presidential election overshadowed by intense polarization, have called into question the resiliency of our democracy.
A salient question emerges from consideration of these events: What is, or should be, the role of lawyers as society grapples some of the most vexing problems in our modern democracy?
Dean Richardson and Former Dean of The George Washington University Law School and Distinguished Visiting Professor Blake Morant will address this question and others related to the importance of American legal education and lawyers in a 21st century democracy. Please mark your calendars and engage with what should be a stimulating discussion.
