The Center for Race, Immigration, Citizenship, and Equality (RICE)
The Center for Race, Immigration, Citizenship, and Equality (RICE) supports scholarship, education, and public service on the ways that intersectional and marginalized identities produce and reflect structural inequality.
- The Center sponsors lectures and conferences that showcase research and scholarly writing from law, political science, sociology, history, and critical theory, leveraging UC Law SF’s existing strengths in Law & Society and in interdisciplinary scholarship. It will additionally integrate other UC and California campuses doing related research as part of the Academic Village.
- The Center educates law students through research assistant and teaching positions, colloquium and conferences, and community educations programs. It also connects them with alumnae engaged in related practice areas.
- The Center convenes policymakers, lawyers, community advocates, and legal scholars engaged in equality work for community events that engage the broader UC Law SF community.
