Minnesota Law’s Diversity and Belonging Committee held the inaugural Minding the Justice Gap Scholarship Series on November 20, 2019.
Professor Myron Orfield of the Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity discussed school segregation in the Twin Cities and how it—along with other factors like gentrification and housing issues—contribute to a lack of diversity in American higher education.
