Summer Learning Series
Summer LEarning Series
The Summer Learning Series (SLS) was developed as part of The DC Movement Lawyer Project, sponsored by the National Law 4 Black Lives Legal Innovators Fellowship. The goal was and is to build a cadre of lawyers, law students and Black people committed to Black Liberation in our nation's capital by using legal tools, legal skills and organizing strategies to further the work. The SLS aims to do this by teaching, radicalizing and politicizing the local legal community in support of Black-led movements in Washington, D.C. The SLS curriculum draws from the Vision 4 Black Lives policy platform and addresses pressing present-day issues of Black people in the District.
The Summer Learning Series was created to support members (and persons interested in becoming members) of Law 4 Black Lives DC in developing a radical politic and shifting from the traditional practice of law to a movement lawyer framework.
