This issue, Teaching About Race and Family Law, focuses on different ways to promote racial justice through educating current and future members of the legal profession. The articles are described in more detail in a separate introduction. Here I would just like to briefly thank and congratulate our authors and FLQ Board of Editors member Professor Jessica Dixon Weaver for their significant work and contributions to this issue.
I would also like to welcome Family Law Section Chair Thad Woody, and to thank Thad, Family Law Section Director Cindy Swan, Program Specialist Danielle Pruger, and all members of the Family Law Section Council. It was a true honor and joy to meet everyone in person for the first time and to participate in the programs at the October Family Law Section Conference in San Diego. Congratulations and thank you also to ABA Managing Editor Susan Lorimor, ABA copy editor Betsy Blumenthal, and ABA Director of Digital Publishing Kyle Kolbe for their work in producing this issue.
This issue marks the final issue edited by the 2021–22 New York Law School Student Editorial Board, with assistance from the incoming 2022–23 Editorial Board. Congratulations to all 2021–22 NYLS student editors for their work in editing the articles for this issue, with specific mentions to outgoing and incoming Editors in Chief April Pacis ’22 and Caroline Shea ’23; Executive Articles Editors Fatin Assaf ’22, Alexia Senkiw ’23 and Claudia Toth ’23; and Editorial Board members Kelly Barrett ’22, Megan Brandon ’22, Mathew Fontanez ’22, and Rian Sirkus ’23.
