Advocacy in Ideas: Legal Education and Social Movements

Bell, Monica; Hernández, Tanya K.; Maldonado, Solangel; Perkins, Rachelle Holmes; Thomas, Chantal; Johnson, Olatunde C.; Lopez, Elise

Panel moderated by Professor Olatunde Johnson, featuring Professors Monica Bell, Tanya K. Hernández, Solangel Maldonado, and Chantal Thomas. Introduced by Elise Lopez.

This panel is really an opportunity to explore the role of women of color in shaping ideas in the legal academy and in legal discourse more broadly. Everyone on this panel today is a professor and has joined legal academia, but what I think we really want to emphasize through this is that for many of us it begins in law school, where you can engage in shaping ideas through the writing that you do in your courses and in journals, in taking leadership positions in journals, and in organizing conferences like this.
