In September 2020, Colorado Law launched Race and the Law, an interactive virtual lecture series focused on the relationship between race and the law, with the objective of generating thinking about the barriers to and possibilities of the law serving as a vehicle of racial justice. Open to law school students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the broader community, each session includes time for small-group discussions to spark ideas for action. The series will run through 2021.
 
The Race and the Law series is part of Dean Anaya's Anti-Racism and Representation Initiative. Announced in July 2020, the yearlong initiative includes a broad range of actions and programs to confront racism and advance greater inclusion in legal education and the legal profession.
