Race and the 1L Curriculum: Civil Procedure

Professor Darrell Miller leads a panel discussion with Suja Thomas, Peer & Sarah Pedersen Professor of Law at the University of Illinois College of Law and Brooke Coleman, Associate Dean of Research & Faculty Development and Professor of Law at Seattle University School of Law. Professors Thomas and Coleman discuss racial representation on the Civil Rules Advisory Committee (the drafters of the rules of civil procedure) as well as the ways in which the rules of civil procedure, such as summary judgment, limit the effectiveness of civil rights litigation as a remedy for discrimination. This event is part of the series on Race and the 1L Curriculum.
