Dictum is a student-run think tank that centers values of equity, inclusion, and questioning the status quo in fields of research and advocacy. The Think Tank aims to produce content such as op-eds, podcasts, literature reviews, and original research, alongside creating space to have dialogue around pertinent topics of equity and justice. The Think Tank will also serve as a hub to mobilize law students to engage in organizing, protesting, and advocating for change.
The term 'dictum', arises in legal vocabulary entailing a formal pronouncement from an authoritative source. Naming our think tank 'dictum' was a choice to appropriate this power and authority and confer it to underrepresented voices. This think tank is rooted in challenging the inequitable distribution of power in society.
