For the third year in a row, LexisNexis® continues to generously sponsor Color of Justice programs around the country. NAWJ Past President Judge Brenda Loftin created NAWJ’s Color of Justiceprogram in 2001 and piloted its launch in St. Louis, MO at the Washington University School of Law. She recently wrote: “The NAWJ Color of Justice program has indeed motivated young girls and young women to be better students, better citizens and most of all, inspired them to become lawyers and judges.”
LexisNexis is delighted to further develop its relationships with NAWJ and associated judges. Many LexisNexis employees have law degrees and practiced law prior to joining the company. Through this special joint NAWJ-LexisNexis effort, LexisNexis staff finds opportunity to impart their wide range of professional experiences to program participants and to share how their legal education and professional experiences apply to their current careers at LexisNexis. In addition to funding, LexisNexis staff assists with the logistics of locating interested schools and community organizations that work with teenage youth.
NAWJ has plans to host Color of Justice programs in San Francisco, Oklahoma, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., as well as other district events in the planning stage.
