About the Center for Racial and Economic Justice

The Center for Racial and Economic Justice (CREJ) works to advance equity through legal education, scholarship and collaboration. CREJ enriches UC Hastings Law by providing our intellectual community with access to nationally renowned thinkers on issues of racial and economic inequality and the space to critically examine how the law reinforces subordination.

CREJ’s three primary avenues for achieving its mission are:

1. Reframing conventional doctrinal course instruction by situating cases and jurisprudence within a historical and structural context of racism and inequality;

2. Convening scholars and practitioners to disseminate information and facilitate dialogue on issues of racial and economic injustice; and

3. Coordinating course offerings and other educational opportunities that center critical perspectives of race, identity, and inequity through which UC Hastings students develop a deeper understanding of the complexities of racism and subordination.
