Mark Dorosin

Mark Dorosin is one of the Managing Attorneys of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Regional Office. He was the Managing Attorney of the UNC Center for Civil Rights for 9 years, until the UNC Board of Governors banned it from engaging in legal advocacy. While at UNC’s Center, Dorosin helped developed the Inclusion Project, which grew out of our clients’ common struggles against the continuing impacts of racial segregation and exclusion. He helped focus the docket on housing discrimination, environmental justice, restrictions on political participation, and racial disparities in education. Dorosin is committed to training the next generation of social justice lawyers, and still teaches Political and Civil Rights and State and Local Government at UNC Law School. He has also taught at Duke University Law School, and worked for Self-Help, a leading North Carolina community development corporation. Following graduation from UNC Law in 1994, Mark was a partner at the Chapel Hill civil rights law firm McSurely, Dorosin & Osment. Dorosin served on the Carrboro Board of Aldermen from 1999-2003. He was elected to the Orange County Board of Commissioners in 2012, where he served as Chairman from 2016-2018
