Barbara Seymour spoke in the Lawyers’ Standing Against Racial Injustice Protest on June 4th in Columbia, South Carolina. We’re proud of her for supporting the organizers of the event, and the call to action she shared: “I will end with a challenge to every South Carolina lawyer to no longer use complexity and detail as an excuse and to exercise your privilege. The privilege I am talking about is the privilege that comes with that law license hanging on your wall. The privilege you have to speak for others with authority and conviction. The privilege you have to mingle with people of power and influence. The privilege you have to understand and interpret the law. The privilege you have to speak the language of the Constitution. And the privilege you have because you are a South Carolina lawyer who has a special responsibility for the quality of justice.”
