About this Event
The NIU College of Law Race and the Law Conversations series provide a platform with expert panelists who will engage in much needed conversations on a wide range of racial and social justice issues including, but limited to, racial inequality, police brutality, and mass incarceration. Our inaugural Conversation on police accountability and reform was presented by Professor Sharon Fairley, ACLU Policing Policy Advisor Paige Fernandez, and NIU Law Professor Paul Cain moderated the discussion. Our second Conversation, “Combating Structural Racism in U.S. Elections” in October 2020 was led by Stanford Law Professor Pamela S. Karlan, one of the nation’s leading experts on voting rights and moderated by NIU Law Professor Jeffrey Omari.
