Making Sense of the World
Professors Joel Samuels and Marcia Zug have received nationwide attention for their insights on two of today's trending topics:
Samuels wrote an article on what can be gained from the indictment of 12 Russian nationals, even if those individuals never face trial in the U.S.
Back to School...
There is no doubt that a good education is vital to the well-being of our nation, and three UofSCLaw professors have been working to improve access to education for all children:
Prof. Josh Gupta-Kagan (top) was cited several times in a recent decision by New Mexico's First Judicial District Court that says the state is failing in its constitutional duty of making sure all students receive an adequate education.
Prof. Derek Black (middle) not only wrote about that very case, but has also been interviewed by the national public radio program The Takeaway about a Michigan case, in which the judge ruled that the U.S. Constitution does not guarantee the right to an education. He also penned an op-ed for USA Today on the legality of using race as a way of achieving diversity in higher ed.
Prof. Eboni Nelson (bottom) has been interviewed twice by the Post and Courier on this same topic, once on the importance of "race-conscious" admissions practices, and a second time after it recently came to light that the College of Charleston stopped considering race as a factor in 2016.
Legal Tech Seminars
The University of South Carolina School of Law is once again hosting it's Legal Tech Seminars, which features guest lecturers who reveal the many ways technology affects the law. This fall, the series will focus on artificial intelligence. The first two topics are:
