Movement Lawyering: Building Power in Communities of Color

In celebration of our 20th anniversary, Advancement Project National Office along with cosponsors Law for Black Lives and the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center, will host a conference uplifting the racial justice movement lawyering model that is used by Advancement Project National Office, Law For Black Lives and others. Our strategic goal is not just civil rights litigation, but rather holistic strategies that center and support the genius of ordinary people to attack systems and build long-term power.

This conference is meant for lawyers, law students, organizers, communicators and those interested in supporting grassroots organizations and communities of color in building power to dismantle structural racism.

UCLA Critical Race Studies Symposium

Gerald P. López published Rebellious Lawyering: One Chicano’s Vision of Progressive Law Practice in 1992, and for three decades the book has reverberated—challenging the color-blind, experts-rule approach of conventional “public interest” practice, providing a blueprint for fundamental changes to clinical and all of legal education, and triggering scholarly and professional debate about what constitutes rebellious and regnant lawyering. Race, racism, and anti-racism are at the center of López’s vision, and UCLA Law’s Critical Race Studies program is honored to devote its 20th anniversary symposium on March 12-13, 2020 to looking at rebellious lawyering past, present and future.
