U. of Maryland law school launches Center for Race and the Law in Baltimore

September 26, 2023

The University of Maryland’s law school announced Sunday it is launching a center focused on racial justice in Baltimore and beyond, an attempt to align itself with Baltimore’s history and current challenges with racial inequality. Named after the law school’s first Black tenured professors, Larry Gibson and Taunya Banks, the Gibson-Banks Center for Race and the Law will “re-imagine and transform institutions and systems of racial and intersectional inequality, marginalization, and oppression,” the center’s newly named director Michael Pinard wrote in an open letter.
