CSL Professors Address Cultural Competency At Upcoming Conference

August 24, 2015

Professors Cabagnot, Matthews, and Nunez will present “Taking a Look under the Hood – A Race and Law Scholar Helps our Clinics Fine Tune our Cultural Competence Training” at the upcoming Southern Clinical Conference in Memphis, Tennessee on October 23, 2014. The theme of this year’s Southern Clinical Conference is “Confronting Issues of Race and Diversity in Clinical Legal Education.” Their presentation represents the Charlotte School of Law’s dedication to engaging issues of race and diversity in clinical legal education. While clinicians have talked to each other about how to address these issues, this presentation will bring the insights of Professor Matthews, a race and law researcher/scholar to bear upon the workings of our clinical program. After reviewing Professor Cabagnot and Nunez’s clinical programs, Professor Matthews will provide her findings and collaborate with our clinical faculty to enhance our program’s ability to confront issues of race, diversity and privilege in the law school clinical atmosphere.
