This program would explore and demonstrate how law libraries and librarians can lead the way in introducing or supporting race-conscious law school curricula or legal services initiatives. Law librarians' skill with legal information literacy includes the ability to lead others through critical understandings of legal information, including how race and racial inequalities are embedded throughout the law, whether in case law, legislation, commentary, or data derived from our justice systems. Law librarians can both lead and further such initiatives in myriad ways, whether through research guides, collection development, cataloguing, workshops, legal research instruction, or community engagement. This program would review some experiences and engage participants in critiques as well as new ideas.
