Center on Law, Race and Politics

The Duke Center on Law, Race and Politics (CLRP) is a multidisciplinary initiative created to support research, public engagement, teaching, and activities at the intersection of CLRP's core focus, which is law and race; law and politics; and law, race, and politics. CLRP, the newest of the multiple centers at the Law School, was created in the fall of 2009 and is co-directed by Professors Guy-Uriel E. Charles and G. Mitu Gulati. CLRP's future activities include symposia, conferences, academic workshops, public lectures, The Book Project, and scholarship roundtables. CLRP is an affiliate of the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Gender in the Social Sciences at Duke University.

Consistent with the Law School's mission, CLRP is particularly committed to supporting law and/or social science students whose academic work and activities are consistent with CLRP's priorities. Forms of support will include grants to encourage independent academic research by students; research assistantships, supervision of academic work by CLRP faculty, mentorship, and opportunities for close collaboration with CLRP's faculty on CLRP initiatives.
