The Jabot

The Jabot


We are an offshoot of the Above the Law legal blog. But we are focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Let’s be real — it can suck out there. So we want to create a space where our community can come together share stories, find support and devise strategies. Our name comes from none other than the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wears 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.

Kathryn interviews Arent Fox partner Eva J. Pulliam about the firm’s newly launched Center For Racial Equality. They chat about the creation of the Center and what motivated the firm to do so, the firm’s role in racial equality, the goals of the Center, and which projects she is initially focused on.
