Promoting Social Jus/ Dialogue

Promoting Social Justice Through Intergroup Dialogue

Learn to promote social justice through intergroup dialogue with your fellow law students. Using the University of Michigan's nationally recognized model for intergroup dialogue, small groups of students, facilitated by trained peers, will learn to improve understanding across different social/political identity groups and learn communication skills essential to successful lawyers. You will:

* learn and practice skills aimed at creating sustained and productive dialogue (not debate);

* explore individual social/political identities and their impact on your law school experience and professional identity;

* place individual experiences in the context of social and systemic forces that can promote and maintain inequality, including the legal system and profession; and,

* advance social justice through the development of related action plans.

After enrollment, students will be asked to respond to a short survey to identify group focus and placements.
