LAWP 400-01 Race and the Judicial Process
Instructor: Douglas Edlin
Course Description:
This course explores the role of the courts in the experience of racial minorities in the United States. Primarily, but not exclusively, we look at the courts impact on African Americans. Where race is concerned, the courts have figured prominently in some of Americas proudest and most shameful moments. Slavery, segregation, affirmative action, redistricting and the treatment of defendants in the American criminal justice system are some of the topics we will address. We will consider the ways in which current policy debates are informed by the historical arc of racial inequities in American law and politics. We will attempt to understand why the issue of race is so persistently divisive in American society and how the courts might still serve to help the United States achieve its egalitarian aspirations.
