Classroom 2

Please join NLG and MLSA for a three-lunch series discussing multiculturalism and white privilege in the legal world. The series kick-off will be on Tuesday, Jan 25 at noon in Room 2. Lunch will be provided by Career Services.


Successful modern lawyers must be skilled at interacting with colleagues, judges, and clients of all cultural backgrounds. This series aims to offer an analytical framework and practical tools for communicating and practicing law across cultural divides. The first session will be an introduction to race-based oppression and white privilege by Prof. Zaher Wahab of the Lewis and Clark School of Education and Counseling.


Lunch will be provided.  Please register to attend using the form below.


Because of the sequential nature of the series’ content, we ask that attendees commit to all three sessions; however, no one will be turned away.
