As lawyers, we are ethically required to work to improve: the law, access to the legal system and the administration of justice. Many would argue that the impact of race is one of the most pressing issues our legal system faces. At the same time, it’s hard to address issues of race because they are so complex, include elements of unconscious bias, and often invoke intense feelings (overwhelm, anger, shame, guilt, and/or helplessness). The difficulties can prevent us from fulfilling our ethical and even moral obligation to act.
