The Legal Profession: An Elite Factory? Evaluating Proposals to Address Disparities in Legal Representation

Wednesday, April 14, 2010
04:00 PM - 06:00 PM

The Modern American, WCL’s publication dedicated to diversity, invites the legal community to a critical conversation about disparate access to legal representation. In the U.S., ninety percent of practicing lawyers represent ten percent of the population. Does this mean that the legal profession is a group of elites who largely serve and benefit other elites? Meet four lawyers who will weigh in on the debate and offer their own proposals about how to make legal representation more attainable, accessible, and affordable. The Modern American will take steps to implement popular proposals during the fall semester.
