Racial and Ethnic Minorities and the Law NewsletterThe newsletter of the ISBA’s Standing Committee on Racial and Ethnic Minorities and the Law

May 2005, vol. 15, no. 3

In This Issue…

  • Voice of the co-editor
    This edition of "The Challenge" is a more personal focus on outreach by committee members to women and minority law students and the description of how one lawyer has formatted her practice to fit the contours of her life.
  • Chairman’s note
    Biblical scripture admonishes us to "give honor to whom honor is due." So many kudos go to Ole Pace for once again placing bar diversity on the front burner of the ISBA's agenda.
  • Reaching law students-Mission accomplished
    Reaching law students and getting them to join the ISBA in the future is no easy task, but the ISBA Standing Committee on Minority and Women Participation has risen to the occasion.
  • It’s not rocket science-It just feels like it
    Monday morning in the Miller household. Unfinished homework, a missing field trip slip, and three lunches waiting to be prepared.
  • “Inspiring Women”-The Women Everywhere: Partners in Service Project marks six years of service to women and children in need
    On two days in May, the Women Everywhere: Partners in Service Project, a collaborative effort of nine area bar associations, will celebrate its sixth anniversary of joining several hundred volunteers-including judges, attorneys and friends of the legal community-together to provide services to women and children in need throughout Illinois.
