Associate Professor Addie Rolnick Co-writes Guest Column for Al Jazeera

Addie Rolnick is an Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Aug. 3, she co-wrote a guest column for Al Jazeera titled Why we must do more than repeal 'stand your ground' laws in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in Trayvon Martin's death.

The column reads, "We will not be saved by the repeal of 'Stand Your Ground' laws because they are only a small piece of the larger picture of self-defence and racial profiling responsible for so many Black deaths."

Professor Rolnick's scholarship focuses on bridging gaps between civil rights, Critical Race Theory, federal Indian law, and indigenous rights.
