Law professor participates in writing workshop

July 8, 2011

Loyola University New Orleans College of Law professor Mitch Crusto joined other distinguished law professors from across the country at the Second Annual John Mercer Langston Writing Workshop at DePaul University College of Law in Chicago, Illinois, June 23-25.

The workshop was created in response to a shortage of African-American males teaching law and is named for the first African-American male law professor in the country. The workshop consisted of several work-in-progress sessions and various panels designed to address writing, teaching and other issues facing African-American males in law academics.

“The conference sensitized me on diversity, including understanding the unique challenges that male law professors of African descent face in academics,” said Crusto.

This workshop came to fruition through months of discussions, brainstorming and planning by professors Frank Rudy Cooper (Suffolk), Areto Imoukhuede (Nova Southeastern), D. Aaron Lacy (Southern Methodist) and Terry Smith (DePaul). Crusto chairs the Ad Hoc Diversity Committee at Loyola’s College of Law.
