Description

This critical race theory in civil procedure content is designed to stand alone and can be used to facilitate classroom discussions related to systemic racism and the law in your civil procedure class. It is drawn in large part from the civil procedure chapter of Brown’s Critical Race Theory, 4th.

The chapter begins with a brief introduction to critical race theory which looks at how societal racism shaped civil procedure principles, particularly who has access and what pleadings are required in order to gain access. Access to the courts is an important part of securing rights for those marginalized by the law. The Chapter begins with the Dred Scott decision and ends with a 21st century access question which is designed to show that access questions for those not privileged remain. The chapter has a selection of cases and law review articles discussing the cases which provide additional information that allow for a fuller discussion of the role of racism in the case. After each set of readings there are questions and notes.
