New York Fellows Virtual Program
Please join the New York Fellows for a complimentary virtual presentation by ABF Postdoctoral Fellow, Sonya Rao.
Learning Cultural Humility for Language Justice: Teaching to Work Across Languages
In this presentation, Dr. Rao will describe results from her study on the state of training and education for law students to work across languages in law school clinics. Findings indicate concerns for access to justice, civil rights violations, and classroom inequality in law school clinics. She will also report on her parallel work as an advocate for language rights, where concepts like language justice and cultural humility are taking hold in policy, education, and training, and have potential to counteract these patterns.
Dr. Sonya Rao is the current ABF/NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Law and Inequality. She received a Ph.D. in Anthropology at UCLA in 2021.
