In this Special Report, ABA President Paulette Brown sits down with William J. Oakes Boys and Girls Club Branch Manager Ricardo Sandoval and Legal Talk Network producer Laurence Colletti to discuss her Mainstreet ABA initiative. She goes into detail explaining why ABA youth outreach is so important and why she has made connecting young lawyers with the youth of America such a priority of her presidency. President Brown also takes some time to discuss the varied resources available to lawyers through the ABA Everyday program. The conversation then shifts to a discussion about the Diversity and Inclusion 360 Commission and the work they are doing on implicit bias within the judicial system.
Paulette Brown has been a lawyer for 38 years, worked for Fortune 500 companies, owned a firm for 15 years, and is now a partner at the Boston law firm Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP. She has been involved with the American Bar Association since she graduated from law school and was confirmed president-elect of the ABA in August 2014.
