The Path  May 2019 Center for Legal Inclusiveness's Monthly Newsletter

   FROM THE CEO                                                                                  

On May 10th, I learned the sad news on the passing of Judge Wiley Daniel, a great mentor and friend to me, and an avid supporter and past board member of CLI. 

If you haven't had the chance, I invite you to watch this video of him, created when he was awarded the Lifetime Recipient Award at our gala. 

He discussed his past and the importance of having a more diverse legal profession. Feel free to post your personal memories in the comment section.  It's a great way for us to remember the wonderful impact he had on each of us.
