Justin Driver Speaks at UO African American Workshop and Speaker Series
Justin Driver of the University of Chicago Law School presented his talk, "Are Public Schools Becoming Constitution-Free Zones?" on April 8 at the University of Oregon. It was the last event of this year’s African American Workshop and Speaker Series.
Professor Driver addressed how the U.S. Supreme Court’s treatment of topics such as race, sex, religion, crime, liberty, patriotism and equality has shaped public education and the constitutional rights of students around the country. Additionally, he explored similar concepts from his 2018 book, The Schoolhouse Gate: Public Education, the Supreme Court, and the Battle for the American Mind.
“We are honored to have Justin Driver as our final speaker for the 2018-2019 African American Workshop and Speaker Series to round out another year of dynamic change agents,” said Yvette Alex-Assensoh, vice president for equity and inclusion at University of Oregon School of Law. “He expertly addresses and intertwines legal issues, education and race. This approach is particularly important as court decisions assume a more pronounced role in the life of our nation.”
