Racial Justice Lessons of Korematsu v. United States 
Date: Tuesday, March 16, 2021
Time: 1:00 PM EDT 

The racial reckoning demanded by the Black Lives Matter movement has caused many law professors and schools to re-examine their curriculum, and incorporate more topics about race, law, and social justice. Designed intentionally to be taught in multiple law school courses, from constitutional law to civil procedure, to professional responsibility and, of course, national security, the recently revised coursebook Race, Rights, and National Security: Law and the Japanese American Incarceration provides timely and important educational content that can be linked not only to the specific racial justice struggles of Japanese Americans, but also other racial minority communities. The authors of the third edition offer examples of how this book, along with other materials available online, can be easily adapted for many different law school courses and provide fertile ground for discussions about the relationship of law to racial justice.
