Panel 2 | 6:30 – 8:00 PM EST
Stifling Campus Activism – Discuss the ways in which higher education stifles and monitors student activism. Panelists will discuss the ways in which both higher education curriculums, incentive structures, and requirements make activism more difficult on campus and pull students away from organizing outside of campus. This panel will discuss the ways in which students and others in academia can remain committed to social causes and how the legal profession can evolve to more directly serve to advance justice.
