Legal Business as Usual | Mitchell Hamline's Anti-Racist Pledge

Event Description

Legal Business as Usual is our bi-weekly legal news webcast. We log in as early as 7:30. We chat casually about what we're reading in the legal news until the 'formal' interview begins at 8 am. We typically wrap between 8:45 and 9 am.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the faculty of Mitchell Hamline School of Law commits to helping the law school to become an antiracist law school...
- Mitchell Hamline Law School Faculty Resolution (February 17, 2021)

This week, we talk with Dean Niedwiecki and Robin Wolpert about Mitchell Hamline's pledge to become an anti-racist institution. Should resolutions like these be required for ABA accreditation? If so, does Mitchell Hamline's resolution adequately model an actionable, anti-racist pledge?


Anthony Niedwiecki, President and Dean, Mitchell Hamline School of Law

Robin Wolpert, Lawyer at Sapentia Law Group, former MSBA President and current MSBA ABA Delegate.
