Critical Race Theory in Clinical Practice will examine readings and ideas in critical theory, in particular Critical Race Theory (CRT), in concert with upper-level clinic students and their client’s legal and lived experiences in clinical practice. Over the semester, students will be introduced to the foundations of CRT and also examine a range of lawyering skills informed by a CRT framework. The class is open to students from all upper-level clinics and seeks to foster dialogue across substantive legal areas, develop community across clinics, help students develop more empathy for their clients, particularly their clients who are members of marginalized groups, which in turn will enhance their client representation, and invite students to think about race and the systemic nature of racism in ways that goes beyond an individual case or body of law.
