In this episode, I speak with Alanna Kaufman and Margot Hoppin to discuss the Lexis Plus platform and they share their experiences in the legal industry with me. They emphasize the importance of doing meaningful work, creating inclusive law firm environments, and networking. Alanna and Margot highlight the values of their public interest private law firms and their focus on positively impacting clients’ lives. They also talk about the challenges of running a law firm, striking a work-life balance, and collaborating with individuals who value personal growth and setting boundaries.
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.
