Diversity CLE Programs

As part of a Catholic and Spiritan University Founded in 1878, our Law School's Mission since our very inception in 1911 has been (and steadfastly remains) built upon a pursuit of justice that advances the values of human dignity and mutual respect. As a law school, we are uniquely positioned to foster inclusive excellence and we are obligated to be powerful agents of change in our community. To that end, Duquesne Law will be presenting a series of CLEs devoted to the subjects of race and poverty. We will be working with our faculty, alumni, and community to present relevant programming to highlight the insidious effects of racism and discrimination. Our goal is to educate, lead positive change and serve as active participants against racial injustice.

Hate in America: Anti-Semitism, Misogyny, and Racism, presented by Rona Kitchen, Associate Professor of Law, Duquesne University School of Law

The CLE will focus on three specific types of hatred in America: Anti-Semitism, Racism, and Misogyny, and will explore similarities and differences between these hatreds and the movements combatting them. It will view these forms of hate through the lenses of intersectionality, history, law, and populism. The CLE will consider both causes of and solutions to these forms of hate with specific attention on opportunities for collaboration between groups to achieve equality and end oppression and persecution.
