David Wilkins, CLP’s faculty director, is quoted in Bloomberg Law today on “Culture Wars Catch Big Law Firms Balancing Client, Staff Demands.” As the article states, “Businesses face unprecedented pressure to be progressive forces for social change; they are turning to their suppliers, including law firms, to push the same values, said David Wilkins, director of Harvard Law School’s Center on the Legal Profession. Law firms respond by taking positions, thus building expectations to do even more, Wilkins said. ‘People said, well, you spoke out for Black Lives Matter and against the murder of George Floyd, what about Asian hate? Or what about Roe v. Wade?’ he said.”
