Critical Race Theory and Law School Curriculum

Isabella Forcino, a 3L at Boston College Law School is working on a project tracking the work being done teaching critical race theory and race in the law in American law schools, including the role of student activism. The goal is to make a toolkit for students in other law schools who want to bring CRT courses to their schools. The toolkit will include student stories of activism and a collection of syllabi and interviews with professors about their course format and content.

Want to help? Isabella is looking for:

  • Stories of students demanding, creating, or otherwise influencing such courses at their law schools
  • Connections with law professors teaching Critical Race Theory courses that may be willing to share their syllabus and be interviewed

If you or someone you know has a story to tell or professor/faculty member Isabella should talk to, please email her at
