I am looking forward to 2015. There are a lot of cool things coming to Progressive Lawyer, things like a job board and directory tailored to the progressive lawyer and law student. Things like new voices looking at issues of importance from the progressive legal standpoint and even some things to take your mind off these most serious issues.
But to kick off the new year, I wanted to present to you a classic Ted talk. Quoting from their site:
Every human deserves protection under their country’s laws — even when that law is forgotten or ignored. Sharing three cases from her international legal practice, Kimberley Motley, an American litigator practicing in Afghanistan and elsewhere, shows how a country’s own laws can bring both justice and “justness”: using the law for its intended purpose, to protect.
Enjoy. Until next week!
