Overview

While the LatCrit commitment to the production of knowledge has led to the publication of 40-some symposia since 1995, it also has led during the past decade to three initiatives that support cutting-edge teaching, and the cultivation of critical approaches to legal education more generally.  The Faculty Development Workshop, conducted annually with the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT), features a rich program of events designed to assist law teachers at every stage of a career.  The E-Syllabi Bank provides a ready on-line resource of varied syllabi for new and veteran teachers to develop course designs innovatively.  The Research Toolkit includes a Keyword Index and Thematic Index covering the 1000-plus works published in LatCrit symposia since 1995 to allow students and other researchers easier access to this body of literature, and to its citational references to the wider scope of critical outsider jurisprudence.  Jointly, these three projects aim encourage and support the individual and institutional efforts of law teachers and students around the country striving to promote social justice goals in and through legal education.
