Cardozo Law School in NYC Now Requiring ‘Systemic Racism’ Courses to Graduate

“designed to help our students examine and understand racism in the law and throughout the legal system”

The school is also saying that race and racism will be integrated through all teachings. This ideology aims to take over everything.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

NYC Law School Makes ‘Systemic Racism’ Courses a Graduation Requirement

A top New York City law school announced Thursday that students will be required to take courses on systemic racism and critical race theory to graduate.

In an email to students, Yeshiva University’s Cardozo School of Law laid out major curriculum changes “designed to help our students examine and understand racism in the law and throughout the legal system.” Chief among the changes is that students beginning with the incoming class of 2024 must complete at least one of four newly created classes on “race and the law” in order to graduate. The four classes are Race and the Law, Critical Race Theory, Indigenous Rights in the Americas, and Cross-Cultural Negotiation.

The email further announced that “explorations of race and racism” would be integrated throughout all the school’s teachings, “including in courses that are not primarily or ostensibly about race.” All first-year students going forward will also be required to attend training sessions on topics such as “implicit bias” and “microaggressions.”

“Cardozo is committed to training lawyers who can recognize and respond to the ways in which systemic racism impacts our world,” the school wrote in the unsigned email.

The changes were spurred by the law school’s dean, Melanie Leslie, who last year was one of several law school deans who wrote to the American Bar Association Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, which accredits law schools, “urging it to require that schools address bias, cultural awareness, and anti-racism,” the email states.

    PS: The H in “feh” is pronounced.

      I thought “feh” was pronounced with the vowel sound for the first syllable in fetid, or fentanil, or

        It is. (At least, I’m not sure how you pronounce “fetid”. But it’s the vowel in “fed” and “fell” and “fen”.) And the H is not silent. It sounds the same as an H at the beginning of a word. That doesn’t sound natural to English speakers.

          A good friend has a habit of saying “sort-of feh”. I’ve today him feh is, or isn’t. On or off. Zero or one.

      You can stop reading where it mischaracterizes Cardozo as a “top New York City law school.” It is not in the US News top 50 these days, and three other NYC schools are ranked decidedly higher.

I suspect the school’s namesake is rotating fast enough in his grave to be a new source of energy.
