Description

As we become increasingly aware of the importance of cultural differences in society and the importance of law in achieving social justice, we need to ask how we are teaching the law in our classrooms. What many of us see as simply “reading cases” has deep cultural roots and possible biases. This presentation will explore the connection between jurisprudence and cultural competence in our classrooms.
