Making Way for Next-generation Legal Changemakers
Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)
When I was young, I thought lawyers were white, old, worked in fancy offices, and did more harm than good to communities of color. But the truth is that lawyers have the potential to be social justice change makers. They write, defend, and challenge laws. They right historical wrongs in our courtrooms and beyond. But in order to unleash their social justice power, we must redefine what it means to be a lawyer, and make way for the next generation of legal changemakers.
