Drake Law School launches webinar series on dismantling systemic racism


Drake University Law School will host a fall webinar series to address a broad array of policies and practices that perpetuate racial inequities in American society. The series of livestreamed talks, which begins Sept. 4, features Drake Law faculty and guests sharing their expertise about underlying structures that reinforce racism and oppression in our society. “Working to dismantle systematic racism is a moral and ethical imperative for lawyers,” stated Maura Strassberg, professor of law at Drake Law School and organizer of the lecture series. “In subtle and systematic ways, our existing structures of law operate to perpetuate inequality and oppression. Exposing the ways in which this occurs is the first step toward both acknowledging the systematic way racism has been worked into American society and recognizing what is required to truly achieve our fundamental commitments to equality, liberty and democratic governance.” All lectures will be held on Friday afternoons at 1 p.m. and are free and open to the public. One hour of Iowa Continuing Legal Education credit has been approved for each lecture. For more information or to register, visit https://bit.ly/3lBJnKb.
