Cassidy Chivers and Kendra Basner Author Article "Actions Speak Louder Than Words: The Legal Ethics of Equality"

February 8, 2016

Cassidy Chivers and Kendra Basner, San Francisco-based partners in the Lawyers for the Profession® group at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, authored the article "Actions Speak Louder Than Words: The Legal Ethics of Equality" published by The Recorder on February 5, 2016. 

The article discusses the issue of legal ethics of equality, specifically taking a look at how the American Bar Association makes an effort to maintain a commitment to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. The article then examines whether the principle and practice of the ethics of equality are mirrored, as legal ethics do not regulate the conduct of lawyers and only regulates the basic methods, assumptions, and propositions upon which the legal system is based on.
