Why are elite lawyers unwilling to hold each other accountable when they participate in and enable the violation of democratic and constitutional norms? On October 15, the Harvard Parity Project hosted a panel with Professors Leah Litman (University of Michigan Law School), Niko Bowie (Harvard Law School), and Melissa Murray (NYU Law School) and Christopher Kang (Demand Justice) to discuss how the legal profession systematically pushes talented law students and lawyers out of the pipelines to important professional and intellectual experiences — including clerkships — and why it harms our democracy.
Thank you to our panelists @nikobowie, @LeahLitman , @cdkang76, and @ProfMMurray and our moderator @nicole_rubin_ for a FANTASTIC panel on toxic elitism in the legal profession! We’ll be recapping the highlights below. pic.twitter.com/Ebgx9S46QQ
