This virtual symposium will discuss ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed legal education in the US, addressing:
How the shift to online education affects and is affected by power relationships, race, gender, class, disability and family status, among other factors.
Whether, and to what extent, the turn to online education heralds an unprecedented transformation for institutional higher education.
The views of regulators on the regulatory climate in response to increased shifts to online legal education.
The day-to-day challenges of delivering effective legal education online in the midst of the complex environment explored in the other panels.
Dorfman will be a panelist on "Power, Race, Gender, Class, Disability and Family Status," moderated by Margaret Woo of Northeastern University. Kohn will join "The Classroom" panel, moderated by Michele DeStefano of University of Miami School of Law. Cass R. Sunstein, Founder and Director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard Law School, will deliver the keynote.
