USD School of Law 60th Anniversary Faculty Panel on Brown v. Board of Education and Alumni Reception


Brown v. Board of Education: Reflecting on the Past, Contemplating the Future

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of University of San Diego School of Law and the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the law school is holding a faculty panel discussion followed by a reception for the local community, dignitaries, judges, alumni, current law students, admitted law students, undergraduate students and faculty/administrators.

Moderated by Vice Dean and Professor of Law Mary Jo Wiggins, this panel of four distinguished law scholars will discuss the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision of Brown v. Board of Education, including what the decision means; what impact the decision has had, and will have on education, race and crime; and a discussion of critical legal consciousness and transformative politics.

This event is made possible through support from the USD Law Alumni Board, the Pardee Legal Research Center and USD School of Law.
