Yale Law School Teach-In Series

April 20, 2021

Criminal Justice, Racial Justice, Policing, and the Derek Chauvin Trial

Yale Law School invites the Yale University community to a virtual teach-in series.  Each panel discussion will feature YLS experts in the fields of racial justice, criminal justice, and police reform.  The panels will delve into the ramifications of the Derek Chauvin trial and discuss the legal and societal implications for the past, present and future.  At a time of significant unrest, uncertainty, and trauma that has disproportionately impacted our friends, students, and colleagues of color, we hope to help bring the Yale community together for a period of healing, learning, and solidarity.  Join us.
