Recent police killings of Black men and women has spurred a dialogue on racial injustice in the legal profession and a push for greater inclusion. On this episode, Grace Speights and Tara Elliott join The National Law Journal Editor in Chief Lisa Helem for a candid conversation. Speights, who leads the labor and employment practice at Morgan Lewis & Bockius, and Elliott, an intellectual property litigator at Latham & Watkins, discuss the weighty conversations they’re having at their firms, what changes they hope to see, and how their roles as mothers has shaped each of their perspectives on racial justice.
