SALT Breaking-In Event For New Law Teachers at 2016 Annual SE/SW People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference

A SALT-sponsored pipeline (“breaking-in”) workshop for new law teachers was held on February 25, 2016, in conjunction with the 2016 Annual Southeast-Southwest People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University College of Law in Orlando, Florida from February 26 -27, 2016. The theme of this year’s conference was “Power and Authority in Promoting Justice for All.” There were sixty-five attendees to the conference, which included twenty-five students.  Topics ranged from “Conceptualizing Islamophobia, Extremism, Radicalism and Terrorism” to “Teaching Social Justice in the Law Curriculum.”

The panels at the SALT breaking in event SALT1were entitled “So You Think You Want to Be an Administrator,” “How to Navigate the World with Your Law Degree,” and “Shark Tank: Getting In and Staying in the Legal Academy.” There was laudatory feedback about these panels from students, law professors, judges and practitioners. All agreed that the pipeline panels were excellent and that the conference was a resounding success.
