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. The center was created in the fall of 2009. An affiliate of the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Gender in the Social Sciences at Duke University, CLRP’s activities include symposia, conferences, academic workshops, public lectures, and scholarship roundtables.
CLRP is particularly committed to supporting law and social science students whose academic work and activities are consistent with the center’s mission. Forms of support include grants to encourage independent academic research by students, research assistantships, supervision of academic work, mentorship, and opportunities for close collaboration with CLRP's faculty.
