The Law Review focuses on issues related to human rights, civil rights, and international law.  We first attained our co-curricular status in 2015, and are looking to take the Law Review to new heights.  Our Annual C. Clyde Ferguson Lecture is in memory and honor of C. Clyde Ferguson, former dean of the Howard University School of Law and a former distinguished professor of law at Rutgers University Law School. Ferguson’s dedication to human rights issues throughout his distinguished career is well-known.  With that notion in mind, we typically select a theme each year that speaks to civil and human rights issues that plague our communities in honor to keep the fight going that Ferguson and so many others have established.  For our next theme we would like to focus on black economic empowerment and the legal obstacles and challenges people have overcome and still have to be aware of today.  We feel that black economic empowerment is one of the less commonly talked about issues in our community and wanted to take this as an opportunity to be on the forefront charge of it. The next lecture will take place January 19, 2017.
