Professor Jeffrey Baker Presents "Racial Justice, Access to Justice, and Ethical Lawyering" -- The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple
Professor Jeffrey R. Baker presented "Racial Justice, Access to Justice, and Ethical Lawyering" for a Qualifying Session of The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple on October 22.
Via The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple:
This Qualifying Session will address the professional, ethical imperative for racial justice and access to justice in the legal system. Equity and inclusion bolster the rule of law, justice, and democracy. Lawyers bear a unique obligation to strengthen and sustain the rule of law in a constitutional government. Thus, lawyers must address the exclusion of people and communities because of race or poverty and advocate for the inclusion and empowerment of everyone governed by the law.
