  • ABA President Paulette Brown Works Against the Clock
    she set out for Seton Hall s School of Law on a full scholarship a coworker offered what was perhaps meant as a preemptive consolation Don t be upset if you flunk out in your first year Needless to say that didn t happen It wouldn t be the last time someone underestimated Paulette Brown A guidance counselor at Seton Hall pushed her and she says other minority students toward the public defender s office or legal services Brown ignored the advice and pursued corporate law initially working in employee benefits More than once she showed up at court only to have the sheriff s officer question why she was there He d ask Was I the defendant The plaintiff The court reporter she remembers It s not surprising that Brown has developed a passionate interest in what psychologists call implicit bias the idea that underlying assumptions about a group of people for example can skew the decisions we make Implicit bias says Brown may help explain why more progress has not been made in having more diverse and inclusive law firms If economic conditions force a firm to lay off staff says Brown those with the lowest billable hours are most vulnerable And generally speaking says Brown because people of color are not getting enough meaningful assignments resulting in low billable hours it can lead to layoffs during economically challenging times Recommended Reading Neil Cavuto Moderating Master Brown believes implicit bias can also result in sentencing disparities between black and white defendants When a person of color commits a crime the assumption is This is what we expected of you and this is why we re going to give you a harsh sentence says Brown Whereas if a white person commits a crime the thought is This must be an anomaly therefore we re going to give you a chance As ABA president Brown has a unique opportunity to confront this alleged syndrome She created the Commission on Diversity and Inclusion 360 to develop training materials to help judges prosecutors and public defenders understand implicit bias and explore ways to address it She s also hoping to develop a set of instructions that would make jurors aware of the problem It s unlikely though that anyone can banish implicit bias from the justice system until the legal profession itself is more inclusive To that end Brown has charged the commission with finding ways to bring more diversity into the field It s essential she says to start early We ve got to disrupt the school to prison pipeline first of all she says to make sure kids graduate from high school and get to college Stephanie Scharf a partner at Scharf Banks Marmor LLC in Chicago and a member of the commission says that Brown has both vision and energy to get things done so I believe she will have a very profound impact on reenergizing the ABA s focus on diversity and inclusion Many of Brown s other
