As part of AU’s Black History Month celebration, last night’s forum “The Black Face in Law and Politics” featured a discussion between several African-Americans from the Washington College of Law community about motivation and steps to achieve a legal career. Issues facing minorities were also mentioned. Speakers included students of the school, law professors Cheryl Epps and Isiah Leggett and WCL Director of Financial Aid Sherry Williams. The topics all emphasized the reasons for practicing law and making a change in society.
“I felt it was a great experience,” Ashley Futrell of Phi Alpha Delta said. “The panelists were elaborate on the issues and ... very enthusiastic.”
The event was sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity International.
