Today marks the 70th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, a landmark decision that stated "[segregated education is] inherently unequal” and “generates a feeling of inferiority as to [Black students’] status in the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely... ever to be undone.”

Ralph Richard Banks, the Jackson Eli Reynolds Professor of Law and
Faculty Director of the Stanford Center for Racial Justice, recently wrote a piece for Stanford Lawyer titled "Brown v. Board: Success or Failure?" where he weighed in on how the decision has aged:

"Brown at 70 is not aging well. The shortcomings of the decision—necessary to secure unanimity—are becoming ever more apparent. One problem is the narrowness of the decision. The Court merely prohibited the deliberate segregation of the schools by the government. The Court neither required that the government provide integrated schools nor an adequate education."

David Sklansky, the Stanley Morrison Professor of Law and
Faculty Co-Director of the Stanford Criminal Justice Center joined SLS Professors Pamela Karlan and Richard Ford on Stanford Legal's most recent podcast episode to discuss the legal challenges facing former U.S. president Donald ...Trump.

"Obviously, the judge doesn’t want to put him in jail either, so there’s a bit of a game of chicken here, and Trump is a chaos agent, so then normally, you think that in any game of chicken, he’ll win because he doesn’t care if the world blows up, but here, I don’t think he’s going to win. I think that as much as the judge doesn’t want to put Trump in jail, Trump even more doesn’t want to go to jail," said Professor Sklansky in the episode. Listen in at the link below.

Daniel Ho, the William Benjamin Scott and Luna M. Scott Professor of Law and the founding director of Stanford’s Regulation, Evaluation, and Governance Lab (RegLab), along with Christie Lawrence, JD ’24 (MPP, Harvard Kennedy School of Government), joined SLS Professors Pamela Karlan and Richard... Ford on the most recent Stanford Legal podcast episode titled, "AI in Government and Governing AI: A Discussion with Stanford’s RegLab."

"We started the Reg Lab around five years ago. Really as we were working with government agencies and realizing that just as we saw the technology really taking off, government was increasingly behind in actually bringing in the expertise and having the digital infrastructure to really think about the implications for government itself," said Professor Ho in the episode. Listen in at the link below.

The 2024 Law Firm Expo Series wrapped up on April 23 with attorneys and recruiters (including 40 SLS alumni!) from more than 35 law firms giving students the chance to expand their knowledge of the legal market. The Law Firm Expos were a fantastic opportunity for Stanford Law School students to ...network with private sector attorneys, develop valuable contacts, and receive first-hand advice on navigating the legal profession.

"It was wonderful to be back at SLS and see Paul Brest Hall packed with students eager to learn about the wide variety of private practice opportunities. I loved getting to share my work experience with students and, as always the case at SLS, the students ask great, probing questions and are impressive, engaged and enthusiastic," said Haley Schwab, J.D. '22, who works as an associate in the Capital Markets practice at A&O Sherman. We are grateful for all of the firm representatives who came to SLS to give our students invaluable insights and advice.

How long does it take to conceive and roll out a groundbreaking AI tool? About 48 hours, at least at the recent CodeX Hackathon, where two SLS students were part of winning teams.
