64th Annual John R. Coen Lecture: The Power and Persistence of Racism

The 64th annual John R. Coen Lecture is presented by Deborah N. Archer, president of the ACLU, a tenured professor of clinical law and director of the Civil Rights Clinic at New York University School of Law, and co-faculty director of the Center on Race, Inequality, and the Law at NYU Law. This lecture is co-sponsored by the ACLU of Colorado.


This lecture series is in the namesake of John Coen, a distinguished member of the Colorado bar and an able public speaker. In 1955, his widow Adrian S. Coen, established the lectureship in his memory. The purpose is to bring a prominent and distinguished lawyer, jurist, or scholar of law to deliver an annual lecture to Colorado Law’s students and faculty on a legal subject of interest and benefit to the profession, preferably with some public or political aspect.
