In the Interests of Justice
Professor Rhode talked about her book, In the Interests of Justice: Reforming the Legal Profession, published by Oxford University Press. She discussed minority and gender inequities confronting the legal profession. Citing statistical and anecdotal examples of inequality, Professor Rhode asserted that race and gender bias exist within law firms. Although she believes that much of the bias is unconscious, she feels it impacts pay and promotion opportunities for women and minorities. The author’s presentation was followed by a question-and-answer period. close
