Associate Dean for Admissions, Kathy Seward Northern, was recently interviewed by Ohio State News for a feature titled, “Examining how Ohio State is a resource for challenging racial inequities and disparities.”

“All of our faculty to think about ways in which systemic racism has influenced the development of law,” Northern said. “Our goal is to help students to understand by the time that they leave the law school. It’s not just what the rule of law is now, but how it came to be and how various structures influence it.”

Northern has been a member of the Moritz faculty since 1991 and teaches Advanced Topics in Tort Law, Environmental Justice, Law & Technology, Products Liability, and Torts.
