About the Law & Social Movements Colloquium Series


The Colloquium is a five-part series featuring pairs of lawyers and organizer-activists who have collaborated with each other in the context of active social movements. Attendees will learn about collective mobilization, the role of law in both impeding and encouraging the political activism of marginalized people, and the ways in which lawyers are working in support of such mobilizations.
