    2020 was a year when race was pushed to the forefront of our national consciousness with the protests that followed the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many other African Americans at the hands of law enforcement. In response, law schools across the country are implementing anti-racism and racial justice into their curricula. A panel of law school deans, administrators, and professors will share different models and strategies they used at their law schools, the processes they engaged in designing and executing such curricula, and the projections for broader curricular reform in legal education.
