Jews and the Legal Profession [Cardozo Law School]

* Three notes of preemptive defense: (1) it’s not “racist” to note that certain racial or ethnic groups make up a disproportionate percentage of a particular profession or industry; (2) this is less objectionable than a lot of material you’d see on The Daily Show, SNL, etc.; (3) we are not commenting, negatively or positively, on the contributions Jews have made to the legal profession. We’re merely suggesting that, in the grand scheme of things, there are more urgent topics out there to hold conferences about. Thank you.
