    Democracy is in crisis. From the judiciary to the legislative and executive branches, decisions are being made that target or disproportionately disenfranchise underserved communities. Persistent injustices we have witnessed over recent years have triggered a reckoning in many institutional spaces, including American law schools. This panel considers the role legal education plays in defending democracy by incorporating social justice into law school curricula. Panelists will discuss integrating related teaching methods into their courses and the law curriculum more generally. Panelists will also discuss the challenges, barriers, and solutions to attempts to resist justice-infused legal curricula.
