    The past few years convened to bring heightened awareness of already existing systems and institutions of racism and injustice. We witnessed example after example of police brutality and the extreme disparate impact of the pandemic on poor communities of color. We have once again seen the rise of white supremacy and civilian attacks on people of color. In the midst of this ongoing onslaught, we will gather to discuss the past and future of clinical legal education and the academy. Are we an anti-racist institution yet or do we have some distance to travel? How will we get there? Do we have the courage to get there? Each of our four panelists will discuss these issues from their varied vantage points: a dean, two authors of articles in 2000 and 2020 about diversity in clinical legal education, and an associate dean for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
