A Conversation on the Intersection of Race, Inequality and Private Law Firm Practice

What role should law practices play in addressing the issues of race and ethnicity in America today? Do partners and associates with diverse backgrounds have a special obligation to take on the work of advancing racial justice? These and other questions were addressed in a panel convened by the Law School’s Center on Race, Inequality and the Law (CRIL) on October 12. Moderated by Anthony C. Thompson, professor of clinical law and faculty director of CRIL, panelists included Theodore Wells, partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison; Lisa Davis ’85, partner at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz; Damaris Hernández ’07, partner at Cravath, Swaine & Moore; and Debo Adegbile ’94, partner at WilmerHale.
