What “A Letter from a Birmingham Jail” Teaches about Inclusion in the Law Out of Stock
About the Seminar
Join CLE Performer & Ethics Educator Stuart Teicher for a special two-hour lunch and learn live ethics webcast. Stuart will present two brand new presentations that will educate and entertain you so don’t miss this unique opportunity!
In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested in Birmingham, Alabama for violating the States’ law against mass public demonstrations. From his jail cell, Dr. King penned an important response to clergy-people who criticized the protest that got him arrested. The words from that letter have proved to be among Dr. King’s most important writings and, interestingly, they are relevant to lawyers as well. Stuart evaluates the text of that letter and explains how the content of that critical piece of correspondence can help lawyers improve their professional responsibility to incorporate inclusion in the practice of law
