Race and the 1L Curriculum: Torts

September 24, 2020 • 12:30 PM • Virtual

Issues of race and racism are often absent from scholarly and casebook discussions of tort law. Race and racism, however, have a substantial influence on a broad range of issues within tort law, from the valuation of injuries to the types of tort claims recognized by courts. Join us for a discussion on these and related matters with Regina Austin, the William A. Schnader Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania, and Jennifer Wriggins, the Sumner T. Bernstein Professor of Law at the University of Maine. The panel discussion will be moderated by Professor Michael Frakes.
