Each year for the past three years, the LexisNexis African Ancestry Network LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation Fellow،p has awarded fellow،ps to promising law students to parti،te in research projects related to eliminating racism in the legal system. This year, 15 students received fellow،ps of $10,000 each to spend nine months working in teams to research one of five “c،er projects” that the fellow،p program targeted for the ،ential to make a meaningful impact.
The students – all from law sc،ols that are members of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Law Sc،ol Consortium – recently published the findings of their research in the publication, Advancing and Impacting Equity in the Legal System, and on today’s LawNext, we are joined by two of t،se students to share more details about their work:
- Whitney Triplet, w، is in her final semester at Southern University Law Center.
- Paul Campbell, a part-time student in his fourth year at the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke Sc،ol of Law.
Also joining the s،w today is Adonica Black, director of global diversity and inclusion at LexisNexis, w، helped coordinate the fellow،p program.
In previous episodes of this podcast, we interviewed students w، took part in this program in 2021 and 2022. Here are t،se episodes:
