Law School Celebrates Black History Month

February 19, 2019

To celebrate Black History Month, the Law School hosted a panel discussion on Tuesday titled “The Uneasy Truth.”

Law School alumni spoke candidly about what they wish they had known before attending law school and embarking on a career in the legal profession. Panelists fielded questions about whether they had faced racism at the Law School or in the legal field, and they provided practical advice for navigating those challenges.

The panelists were:

Sharon Hamilton Broach (’02), Attorney, Ken Perry Law Firm LLC

Christian Fuller (‘11), Assistant General Attorney, Georgia Office of the Attorney General

Bridget Harris (’17), Associate, Lightfoot & Franklin

Hon. Reginald Jeter (’04), Circuit Court Judge, 10th Judicial Circuit

Janine Smith (’00), Of Counsel, Global Business Advisors LLC

Hon. Traci Todd (‘07), Circuit Court Judge, 10th Judicial Circuit

Moderator: Darrius Culpepper, 3L

The event was sponsored by the Office of Diversity & Inclusion and the Law School’s chapter of the Black Law Students Association.
