The November edition of Live with Kellye & Ken focused on Advancing Racial Equity in the Legal Profession. In the aftermath of a historic and hotly contested election, they explored questions about racial equity in law and legal education with these distinguished guests:
- Dean Danielle Holley-Walker, Howard University School of Law
- Dean A. Benjamin Spencer, William & Mary Law School
- Rachel Moran, distinguished professor of law, University of California, Irvine School of Law
- Joseph K. West, partner and chief diversity and inclusion officer, Duane Morris
The panel was moderated by Deans Emeritus Kellye Testy (LSAC president and CEO) and Ken Randall (iLaw founder and president) and addressed the following questions:
- In light of the election, what’s top of mind when it comes to equity and law and legal education?
- Do law and legal education have unique roles to play in advancing racial equity?
- How can we best support law students from underrepresented groups so that they become successful lawyers who add their diverse voices to the legal profession?
- Why is law school the right choice at this time in our history for making needed contributions to society?
