The life of an American Bar Association President is very busy. This is particularly true for one who travels to all 50 states, is dedicated to the well-being of young people, and leads by example. In this On the Road report, hosts Sandy Gallant-Jones and Kareem Aref, the 7th Circuit Governor and the chair for the ABA Law Student Division sit down with outgoing ABA President Paulette Brown at the 2016 ABA Annual Meeting.
Together, they discuss her programs for diversity and inclusion, her work with the Boys and Girls Club of America, and special moments that meant a great deal. As the first woman of color to head the ABA, Paulette had much to say about the importance of being involved from the inside rather than merely looking in. She believes it’s crucial for both young lawyers and law students to be personally involved in helping the next generation. Being present and engaged shows young people what is possible and helps them aspire to more. In closing, President Brown implores busy law students to manage stress by getting plenty of exercise, making time for personal reflection, and even allowing for the occasional indulgence.
Paulette Brown is the outgoing President of the American Bar Association. She 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.
