IMPORT OF THE RACE, GENDER, SEXUALITY, & SOCIAL JUSTICE LAW JOURNAL IN 2021
The launch of the Race, Gender, Sexuality and Social Justice Law Journal is no small feat and I applaud our student leaders for their fortitude in the middle of a year unlike any other. In 2020, our country underwent a national reckoning on race trigged by the unlawful death by police of several unarmed African American women and men while grappling with a global pandemic that halted life as we knew it. Our GGU law students, like all students everywhere, persevered – shifting to remote learning and remaining focused. Their longstanding goal to create a space at GGU Law to lift legal issues largely neglected by traditional legal scholarship remained remarkably steadfast. This Journal is a testament to their dedication to a project bigger than them and something that will outlive their time at GGU Law. I am deeply humbled to serve as their faculty advisor.
