Former UNC law center employees continue fight for civil rights

After the September 2017 UNC Board of Governors vote that banned the UNC Center for Civil Rights from litigating and the abrupt termination of employees Elizabeth Haddix and Mark Dorosin amid the Center's shutdown, the two have continued their work through the newly founded Julius L. Chambers Center for Civil Rights.


Center for Civil Rights

The Center for Civil Rights was founded in 2001 at the UNC School of Law. It was founded by Julius L. Chambers, who became the center’s first director. The center works to end the inequalities facing minorities and low income people. They try to achieve this through litigation, scholarly research and activism. 

The current director of the center is Ted Shaw.
