THE IMPACT OF WOMEN OF COLOR IN THE JUDICIARY
The Dickinson Law Review will present “The Impact of Women of Color in the Judiciary,” beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, March 24, 2023 in the Apfelbaum Family Courtroom and Auditorium, Lewis Katz Hall, Dickinson Law. Members of the judiciary and academia will discuss how women of color have shaped the judiciary, and the role of women of color on the bench moving forward.

Each year, the Dickinson Law Review symposium brings together stakeholders in the legal community — including practitioners, academics, jurists, and law students — for scholarly dialogue about forthcoming or recently published articles.
