Client Conversations: Interview with L. Song Richardson, Dean and Chancellor's Professor of Law at the University of California, Irvine School of Law

Date: 9 July 2020

In this episode, Craig Budner interviews L. Song Richardson, the Dean and Chancellor’s Professor of Law at the University of California, Irvine School of Law, with joint appointments in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society and in the Department of Asian American Studies. When she was appointed in 2018 as dean of the UCI Law School, she was the only woman of color to serve as dean among U.S. News & World Report’s top 30 law schools. Growing up with her father, an African-American and a lieutenant colonel in the Army, and her mother, a Korean immigrant, she was an accomplished pianist who chose Harvard over Juilliard. Listen to how she leads with empathy by sharing her impactful research on implicit bias and racial and gender anxiety in the legal community and beyond.
