The legal industry has been confronting its diversity problems lately. But the identity of the first generation lawyer can sometimes be overlooked. On today's program, we hear from Traci Martinez, a partner at Squire Patton Boggs, and Ciarra Carr, an associate at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe about the struggles faced by attorneys who are the first in their families to hold professional jobs—or perhaps even go to college. Things that a lot of new lawyers might take for granted, like owning a suit to wear to a job interview or making small talk at a networking event—can present challenges. Legal Speak is brought to you by Econ One, offering economic expertise, consulting and dispute resolution, and data analytics.
