Abstract

In this article, Cynthia Lee addresses the issue of incorporating race into the criminal procedure curriculum. She notes that incorporating discussions about race into the curriculum involves some risk, particularly for junior professor of color but even for senior professors of color who might be perceived as promoting a personal agenda. She discusses ways that a law professor of any race who wishes to incorporate issues of race into the criminal procedure curriculum can do so.
