TRUMP ACCOUNTABILITY TEAM
History will remember the lawyers who engineered or defended the Trump Administration’s attacks on civil rights, immigrants, workers’ rights, the climate, and democracy itself.
In the meantime, these lawyers think they can launder their reputation with a cushy job in BigLaw or a fancy academic post—and their law firms don’t think their reputations or bottom line will take a hit. But we’re going to show the legal profession that there are consequences for hiring Trump’s legal architects and profiting off of the Administration’s heinous misdeeds.
Read and sign our open letter to let law firms and law schools know how many of us are watching. And law students, take our pledge that you will not interview with or work for law firms that continue to undermine our democracy.
We’re tracking the revolving door between the Trump Administration, BigLaw, lobbying firms, and other private bad actors helping to launder their reputations.
We’re organizing creative, COVID-safe actions to name and shame bad actors in our communities and supporting organizers nationwide to do the same.
We’re drafting op-eds and petitions to shed light on how the Trump Administration’s elite lawyers spent the last four years standing up in court to defending the indefensible.
Our democracy is under attack. President Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee have filed frivolous lawsuits in states across the country in an attempt to overturn the results of a fair election and undermine our democratic process. These lawsuits are failing and have received vehement criticism for their meritless attempts to sow discord and distrust.
Law students everywhere are invited to take our pledge not to interview or work for the law firms doing the majority of the legal work for the Trump campaign’s despotic attempts to threaten our election integrity and the future of our nation.
