On Feb. 29, Fordham Law School announced the opening of the Center on Race, Law and Justice. Professors from the university gave presentations. The keynote speaker was Debo Adegbile, a civil rights lawyer who was previously acting president and counsel director at the AACP Legal Defense Fund, but now is a partner at WilmerHale in New York. The center encourages interdisciplinary scholarship on race, as well as structural inequality and racial justice tools. It will focus on how law is often both the problem and solution in inequality. The center will explore inequality locally, nationally and globally. Fordham Law professor Tanya Hernandez will lead global and comparative law programs and initiatives, while Fordham Law professor Kimani Paul-Emile will lead international programs and initiatives.
