Description

"STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS: THE BLACK PHILADELPHIA LAWYER"

This CLE is a historic first that will explore the audacity, achievements, contributions and challenges of Black lawyers in Philadelphia from 1847 to 2018. It will survey early pioneers in the profession; racial discrimination in bar admissions; practicing law in black and white firms; how race matters at various stages in the civil and criminal litigation process; the role of black lawyers in the struggle for civil rights; and contemporary challenges facing Black lawyers in an era of legal, political and social retrenchment. The program materials will include a comprehensive chronology, detailed bibliography, articles, rare photographs and historical documents that chronicle the 170-year odyssey of the Black Philadelphia Lawyer.
