All Areas of Interest

The issues of racial equality and racial subordination have long defined American law and history, and they are central to our work at Harvard Law School. Students and scholars grapple with the ongoing quest for racial justice through a host of courses, clinics, externships, as well as the research and practical opportunities provided by the Charles Hamilton Houston for Race & Justice.   We tackle these issues from all angles, including mass incarceration, voting rights, economic justice, social media, and the environment.
