At the first Pizza and Prof event this year, Anthony Paik, Professor of Sociology and Director of BDIC will be speaking. Professor Paik will discuss the study which examines race reporting practices in public and private forums as they relate to career outcomes among young lawyers. Specifically, this project examines how patterns of race reporting in the LSAT and a confidential survey are associated with career inequalities for white, racial minority, and multiracial lawyers.


Emmy nominated screenwriter, Jack Monaco (Class of 1989), will speak at 160 Honors Events Hall (next to Roots Cafe) from 5-7pm. Pizza will be served.
