FAMU, COVID, and the Community

Open Ninth Podcast - Episode 108

As we continue to explore this pandemic's impact on our community partners, Chief Judge Don Myers invited the new FAMU College of Law dean, Deidré Keller, to share her perspective on how the virus has changed both the law school and the lives of its faculty and students.

Together, they examine everything from the effectiveness of virtual learning to the continued delay of the Bar exam, and what implications that could hold for the future of students and young lawyers. Along the way, we also learn a bit about Dean Keller's prior professional practice, her transition to academia, FAMU's access mission and racial justice initiative, and the university's work within the Central Florida community.
