LAW DAY REFLECTIONS: Rebecca L. Gould

Laws have a powerful impact on people’s lives. As lawyers, we have an obligation to ensure laws effectuate justice and help solve problems in ways that advance equity. Our country’s history is rich with examples of laws that  have marginalized people based on race, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, and religious affiliation. Despite the progress that’s been made, there is still much work to be done. Law day calls us to reflect on our legal system, listen to different perspectives on the law, take in stories of how the law has shaped people’s lives, and to renew our commitment to improving our laws and legal system. Our communities are calling out for change, for racial justice, and for equity and today’s a great day for lawyers to answer that call.
