StL U Law School Posts #Ferguson Solidarity Page – Asks for Toiletry & Cash Donations for Mob
St. Louis University Law School set up a Ferguson Support webpage recently.
Dean of the St. Louis University Law School, Michael A. Wolff, wrote a letter informing students that it is the school’s mission to educate another generation of lawyers committed to social justice and to being men and women in service to others.
The law school Ferguson Support page brags about what the school is doing to assist the Ferguson protest movement. Many of the professors signed a solidarity statement with the protesters:
** Several SLU LAW professors joined other members of the St. Louis advocacy community in signing a statement of solidarity and support on the events in Ferguson.
The law school also boasts that one of its members, Assistant Professor Justin Hansford, wrote the anti-American manifesto read by Michael Brown’s parents at the United Nations Human Rights Council’s meetings on torture.
Assistant Professor Justin Hansford is taking a leadership role in a variety of efforts. He met with a White House official to discuss the Ferguson events and future plans for community healing. Additionally, he is a founding member of the Young Citizen’s Council of Saint Louis; helping the U.S. Human Rights Network prepare a report to the United Nations; and collaborating with the Advancement Project, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, National Lawyer’s Guild and other national legal groups with associated legal efforts. He also participated in the “Black Lives Matters” panel as part of the National Call to Action.
The law school is holding weekly meetings to brainstorm ideas “for how the law school can get involved in the situation.”
St. Louis University Law School costs nearly $38,000 per year for tuition.
