Seminar Series: COVID-19 and the Law: The Impact of Social Disparities on Responses to COVID-19


Wednesday, March 3, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm



Join us on March 3 for the fourth installment of the COVID-19 and the Law: Disruption, Impact, and Legacy Seminar Series.

This seminar series will consider the ethical, legal, regulatory, and broader social and institutional impacts that COVID-19 has had, as well as the longer-lasting effects it may have on our society. This fourth seminar in the series will focus on the role that social disparities and structural forces have played in the pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost all aspects of life in the United States and around the world, disrupting the global economy as well as countless institutions. The issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic present a critical juncture for the U.S. and other countries around the world. Our actions now have the potential to shape responses to future pandemics, and to ensure institutions serve all of our populations.

How have our institutions, including the structure of our health care system and its attendant regulations, affected the evolution of the pandemic? What lasting changes have legal responses to COVID-19 introduced? Which institutions and intersectional issues have worsened or complicated the impact of and response to the pandemic? Join us for a critical reflection on changes the pandemic has introduced and their anticipated legacy.
