About this event
The Epoch Spotlight Symposium is the product of a partnership between Seattle University Law Review (SULR)and the Black Law Students Association (BLSA). In developing the symposium, our intention has been to embody BLSA’s mission to articulate and promote the professional needs and goals of Black law students, to foster professional competence, and to instill in students a greater awareness of and commitment to the needs of our diverse communities. Further, our hope is to create a hub in the Northwest where students and the region’s legal community can engage with brilliant and distinguished scholars from around the country. The goal of the Epoch Spotlight Symposium is to create space for Black legal scholarship. Black lawyers make up a small fraction—about four percent (4%)—of practicing attorneys in the U.S., and possibly an even lower percentage among legal scholars. We aspire to develop an annual event that inspires and encourages the next generation of Black legal scholarship, where students, scholars, and legal practitioners can explore contemporary legal issues.
We will host our second annual Epoch Spotlight Symposium, Institutional Transformation and the Law, on February 25th, 2022. Those who attend this year’s symposium will have an opportunity to (1) critically discuss substantive equality and formal equality-oriented initiatives; (2) receive a framework to critically examine racial-justice initiatives; (3) understand opportunities and strengths of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives; and (4) engage in discussion about an outcome-oriented, substantive approach to racial justice.
