Law Students for a Democratic Society (LSDS)

Law Students for a Democratic Society (LSDS) is a group of students at Penn Law that seeks to advance a program of critical inquiry and political dissent centered around questions of law and political economy in the face of the legal system’s entrenchment of racism, economic exploitation, and militarism. LSDS strives to cultivate humanistic, politically conscious, radical lawyering at Penn Law through the development of a legal and intellectual framework that supplants questions of economic efficiency with analyses of power and justice.
