Recap: Determined to Rise: A Conversation on Law, Leadership and Being “The First” w/ Paulette Brown

On October 27, 2014, we sat down with Paulette Brown, the President-Elect of the American Bar Association. She spent an hour answering Ms. JD community members' questions. When she takes the reins as President, Ms. Brown will be the first African-American woman to lead the ABA. Ms. Brown is also a labor and employment law partner and chief diversity officer at Edwards Wildman Palmer and has served in many other positions, including as in-house counsel to Fortune 500 companies and a municipal court judge. In private practice, she has focused on all facets of labor and employment and commercial litigation.
