Professor Sarah Rogerson is steering The Justice Center at a pivotal time.
Named director in July 2020, Rogerson plans to con- tinue the center’s longstanding reputation for giving law students real-world experience while also instilling professional and personal compassion.
“There’s no other place where you can practice law and teach law and immediately have it impact the world around you and your community,” she said.
Moving forward, she hopes to expand The Justice Center’s curriculum to include issues surrounding racial justice and public health—two areas of increased urgency. “There’s a big push towards something called movement lawyering, and that’s something that we’re seeing pop up more and more.”
Rogerson served as director of The Justice Center—then the Law Clinic and Justice Center—from 2014 to 2017, and remains director of its Immigration Law Clinic.
