The Society of American Law Teachers, Inc. (SALT) and Latino & Latina Critical Legal Theory, Inc. (LatCrit, Inc.) offer the statement posted below in the wake of the recent tragic events in Baton Rouge, St. Paul, and Dallas. In light of the critical role legal educators play in seeking and securing racial justice, SALT and LatCrit invite organizations and individuals associated with legal education to join us. Please review the statement, sign on, and circulate widely.
To further advance our collective work, please join us at the 2016 SALT Teaching Conference & LatCrit, Inc./SALT Tenth Annual Junior Faculty Development Workshop in Chicago, Illinois (Sept. 29-Oct. 1). The teaching conference will feature a plenary component on how we, as law faculty, can advance racial justice through our work inside and outside of the classroom. We hope to see you in Chicago.
