Professor Michael Paris, CUNY, Staten Island
 
The cause of school desegregation is widely regarded as dead.  Professor Paris’s talk will explore how it might be revived.  A close study of cause lawyering and legal mobilization in Sheff v. O’Neill provides leverage for considering new possibilities for the pursuit of metropolitan-wide school desegregation. 
 
Michael Paris is Associate Professor of Political Science at the College of Staten Island, City University of New York.  He holds a J.D. from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in Politics from Brandeis University.  His research is concerned with questions of distributive justice and public policy, and with the interplay of law and politics in struggles for social change.  Professor Paris is the author of Framing Equal Opportunity:  Law and the Politics of School Finance Reform (Stanford, 2010), which received an honorable mention for the 2011 C. Herman Pritchett Award.
