Speakers Attorney Debra Bulluck and Judge JaPaul Harris will be leading the discussion before and after the film. Film Synopsis: When these five Black lawyers set out on their journeys to receive a professional legal education, they did not realize that they would have to struggle against additional daily battles even more challenging than the rigors of learning the law in a hypercompetitive environment. They discover the paradox of studying in an institution that idealistically represents “justice” for all.
