The Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) has awarded the M. Shanara Gilbert Human Rights Award to the Law Deans Antiracist Clearinghouse Project, a project co-created by Rutgers Law School Co-Dean Kimberly Mutcherson and others.
Mutcherson shares the award with Danielle M. Conway of Penn State Dickinson Law, Danielle Holley-Walker of Howard University School of Law, Angela Onwuachi-Willig of Boston University School of Law, and Carla D. Pratt of Washburn University School of Law, and Elizabeth Frankel (posthumously).
Launched in June 2020, the project is a webpage for law deans, faculty, and the public that contains resources and information related to addressing racism in law and legal education.
