Oh wow! @LeahLitman's remarks are -- wow.
"There is nothing about being a lawyer that requires you to do good. That has to come from you."
"Question people who say that they are not separating families, they are just enforcing the laws."
The profession will "pressure you to stay quiet and to rationalize what is happening around you. It is 'small c' conservative—it is resistant to change. The legal system is comfortable with the way things are. It is a system, and the system, it will say, is working well enough."
continues: "It is your responsibility to seek out those who have suffered and those who are marginalized. There are problems; and it is within our capacity to fix them."
—such crucial words for a graduating class of lawyers in these times
