Paulette Brown

(New Orleans, LA) – On Friday, Nov. 6, the first woman of color to serve as president of the American Bar Association (ABA) will address a group of aspiring legal eagles at10 a.m. in the Cook Center Theatre on Dillard University’s campus. The ABA is the largest professional association of attorneys in the country, with nearly 400,000 members. During her visit, Brown will share her own personal journey into the legal profession and also encourage both Dillard students and high school students to consider and pursue a career in law.

Brown has been recognized by the National Law Journal as one of "The 50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America” and by the New Jersey Law Journal as one of the “prominent women and minority attorneys in the State of New Jersey." Throughout her career of more than 35 years, she has held a number of positions, including president of the National Bar Association, in-house counsel to a number of Fortune 500 companies and as a Municipal Court Judge.

While at the helm of the ABA Brown has launched four initiatives that include the Commission on Diversity and Inclusion 360, which aims to give lawyers from all backgrounds a “seat at the table” and developing sustainable action plans for advancement of diversity over the next 10 years. Other initiatives include Main Street ABA and ABA Everyday. Brown received a Juris Doctor from Seton Hall University School of Law and her Bachelor of Arts from Howard University.

“We are excited about having the first woman of color president of the American Bar Association come and share her experience with our students,” said Dr. Gary Clark, political science professor and director of Dillard’s Center for Law and Public Interest. “Our students are fortunate to have someone of Brown’s caliber come and have a face-to-face conversation with them,” Clark added.
