George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police on May 25, 2020, sparking global protests and civil unrest. In partnership with the University of St. Thomas Racial Justice Initiative and Minneapolis NAACP, the University of St. Thomas Law Journal will convene a symposium to examine how lawmakers and the legal profession have responded – and should respond – to demands for change in the wake of Mr. Floyd’s death. Through dialogue among legislators, academics, and legal practitioners, the symposium will facilitate discussion about systemic racism and our roles as advocates for equal justice, with forward-looking initiatives.
