Critical Race Studies Symposium

Established in 2007, through a collaboration of CRS students and faculty, the CRS Symposium is the signature event of the UCLA School of Law's Critical Race Studies Program. The purpose of the event is to foreground the most innovative ideas and strategies to end racial injustice, to promote learning and collaboration across disciplines, and to integrate racial justice theory and practice.

The Symposium is also the site of the Reunion of Friends and Alumni of CRS, which consists of UCLA Law graduates and others who share our mission to think new ideas, teach new leaders and scholars, and to transform racial justice advocacy.
