Podcast: A Conversation with ABA President, Deborah Enix-Ross and Section Chair Joseph K. West (April 2023)

Deborah Enix-Ross, American Bar Association president, shares how she went from growing up in Harlem to being the first in her family to graduate high school, college and then law school. Deborah’s legal career began in community legal services, a “sink or swim” experience that taught her how to be a litigator. Now a senior advisor to the International Dispute Resolution Group of Debevoise & Plimpton for her “day job,” Deborah also leads the largest voluntary association of lawyers in the world. She talks with Joe about her career journey and her thoughts on the future of the profession and why society needs lawyers in these tumultuous times more than ever before.
