Please join the Office of the Chancellor on March 12 at 3:00 p.m. for a talk by Professor Charles J. Ogletree, Jr., this year’s Phillip J. Bowman Lecturer in Race and Public Policy. This year’s lecture marks the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy (IRRPP) at UIC, and is featured as part of the Chancellor’s Lecture and Event Series.
Professor Ogletree is a prominent legal theorist who has earned an international reputation by taking a hard look at complex issues of law and by working to secure the rights guaranteed by the Constitution for everyone equally under the law. His most recent book is The Presumption of Guilt: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Race, Class and Crime in America, which draws on the 2009 mistaken arrest of Gates to explore issues of race and what must be done to create a more just legal system.
