DICKINSON LAW TO HOST SECOND ANNUAL JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION
June 10, 2021 — The Penn State Dickinson Law community will explore the groundbreaking Race and the Equal Protection of the Laws (REPL) course during a virtual Juneteenth program on Friday, June 18 at 3:30 p.m. Faculty, staff, students, and alumni are invited to attend. CLE credit is available.
Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates June 19, 1865—a day that celebrates black slaves freed from their enslavers.
The program will include welcome remarks by Dean and Donald J. Farage Professor of Law Danielle M. Conway and presentations by Dickinson Law faculty members Mohamed Rali Badissy, Stan Brand, Dermot Groome, Laura Williams, and Sarah Williams. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in an active conversation with community members about REPL. Topics to be explored include a course overview, race and capitalism, the Great Migration, diversity in the legal profession, and race and our constitution.
This program is offered free of charge to Dickinson Law faculty, staff, students, and alumni. 1.5 substantive CLE credits are available. Advanced registration is required here. Participants will receive a link and login instructions via email. Questions about this event can be sent to email@example.com.
