    Access to the profession operates within the legacy of largely unexamined histories of purposeful exclusion that may challenge our comfort with current practices. Professor Mary Szeto will present ordeals of a Chinese-American graduate of Columbia Law in the context of the Chinese Exclusion Acts. Professors Carla Pratt and Gregory Parks will address the exclusion of Black lawyers. Professor Samuel Levine will address the exclusion of immigrant, Jewish, and other minority communities, particularly early in the twentieth century. Professor Joan Howarth will discuss character and fitness exclusions targeting LGBTQ candidates and people with disabilities, from her book, Shaping the Bar (Stanford Univ. Press 2022).
