Racial Capitalism in the Legal Profession

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Racial capitalism – the process of deriving social and economic value from the racial identity of another person – is a longstanding, common, and deeply problematic practice. Legal employers are not immune to the use of racial capitalism as a means to recruit lawyers, obtain clients, and cultivate goodwill within the profession and the broader community. The use of racial capitalism grew exponentially in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the subsequent racial reckoning of the summer of 2020. Join our panel of experts as we deconstruct racial capitalism in the legal profession and generate advice for lawyers and legal employers seeking to engage in racial justice, equity, and inclusion efforts without invoking the tainted fruit of racial capitalism.

Panelists:

Sara Scott, Center For Legal Inclusiveness

Deborah Yim, Primera Law

Meranda Vieyra, Denver Legal Marketing

Free CLE Credit Available!
