I interview attorney Nichad Davis, who shares his journey to law school and his legal work post-graduation, particularly in civil rights where he works towards policy changes and settlements for clients. Nichad emphasizes the importance of supporting aspiring legal professionals, especially those from diverse backgrounds. He urges people to persist despite potential barriers, while challenging discriminatory policies and systems. Nichad also highlights the power of networking and community support and discusses his strategies for avoiding burnout.
The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wore when delivering dissents from the bench. It’s a reminder that even when we aren’t winning, we’re still a powerful force to be reckoned with.
