OA501: Critical Legal Studies and Critical Race Theory

If you’ve heard the buzz about Critical Race Theory lately, you… probably have absolutely no idea what it actually is because the people who have already passed laws in several states banning it don’t even know. But if you’ve heard an informed person talk about it, you may have heard that it has its roots in the law. Well then, what better place to give you a deep dive than on a law show! So what is Critical Legal Studies? How did it pave the way for Critical Race Theory? OA is on the case!
