Thanks to a grant from the Dewitt C. Holbrook Memorial Trust, Detroit Mercy Law introduces the Dewitt C. Holbrook Lecture Series on Social Justice. This lecture series provides prominent leaders in the legal profession a forum to address issues on law and policy related to social justice. The first annual lecture will be on Monday, Oct. 22 at 5 p.m. in Room 226 on the Riverfront Campus. All are welcome to attend — feel free to invite students, colleagues and friends. RSVP online.
For the inaugural lecture, Detroit Mercy Law welcomes Georgetown University Law Professor Paul Butler, one of the nation’s most frequently consulted scholars on issues of race and criminal justice. In his lecture entitled, “Chokehold: Policing Black Men,” Professor Butler will explore issues of racism and police violence, and discuss the need for reform in the U.S. criminal justice system.
