Town Hall To Examine Perceptions Of Race, Ethnicity, Diversity In The Court

CHICAGO, – Fairness underlies both the legitimacy and the effectiveness of the justice system.  For lawyers and judges to believe that the system is fair is a prerequisite, but what about the public?  If the public lacks confidence, what judges and lawyers believe means little.


On Tuesday at “Perceptions of Justice: A Town Hall Dialogue on Color, Ethnicity and the Courts,” held in Washington, D.C., by the American Bar Association Judicial Division Lawyers Conference and the ABA Coalition for Justice, members of the legal profession, including judges, lawyers, court administrators, local leaders of diverse communities and the public, will talk, reflect and seek solutions to the divide between the reality and perception of fairness in the justice system.


What:               “Perceptions of Justice: A Town Hall Dialogue on Color, Ethnicity and the Courts.”

An ABA Judicial Division Lawyers Conference and Coalition for Justice program


Who:                Diverse members of the legal profession, including judges, lawyers, court

administrators, local leaders and the public.

                        3 – 6:30 p.m.


Where:             Old Council Chambers


One Judiciary Square
