WCC; 2009 Classroom

With the administrative state under attack from challenges like Loper Bright and its ilk, how can progressive lawyers continue to deploy the executive branch’s prodigious resources in working toward racial, social, economic and political justice? What role do politics play the life of an administrative law scholar? How can presidential administrations advocate for the beneficiaries of regulations in addition to considering the regulated community? Prof. Block’s experience as head of OIRA, as a NLRB member, as a senior presidential advisor, as a senior counsel to Senator Ted Kennedy, and as a visionary of the Clean Slate for Worker Power, a fundamental redesign of labor law, make her a uniquely qualified (and entirely delightful) person to answer these questions.

Each year the LPE Student Association asks professors to give hourlong lunchtime talks with a critical lens on how the law is shaped by, and in turn shapes, who has and does not have political and economic power. Our goal is to give students strategies and intellectual structures to challenge status quo systems of power in the 1L curriculum and to imagine what a legal curriculum that achieves racial, economic, and social justice would look like. Join us to hear from Professor Block about how to put your values into action in the classroom and beyond. Lunch will be served.
