The Spirit of Our Journey

This program is planned to be a two-hour dialogue featuring experience panels of attorneys from Louisville and Indianapolis. Moderated by James Bell, the program is set to begin with a one-hour session featuring three Louisville and three Indianapolis panelists with 25+ years in law discussing their experience in the profession. This panel will be followed by a one-hour discussion with a similar panel of lawyers with less than 25 years in practice. Our goal is to provide insight on the differing experience of Black lawyers from their white counterparts, by generation and by region. We are striving to provoke discussion, raise awareness, and further inclusion.

Panel One:
Hon. Tanya Walton Pratt, United States District Court, Southern District of Indiana; Hon. Denise Clayton, Chief Judge, Kentucky Court of Appeals; Gwendolyn Horton, Legal Aid Society of Louisville; Raymond Burse, former President, Kentucky State University; Alan K. Mills, Barnes & Thornburg LLP; Nathaniel Lee, Lee Cossell & Crowley LLP

Panel Two:
Aaron W. Marcus - Dentons Bingham Greenebaum; Dwight Haygood, Jr., Assistant General Counsel and Assistant Secretary, Brown-Forman Corporation; Lonita Baker, President of the Charles W. Anderson, Jr. Bar Association; Pamela Grant-Taylor, Marion County Public Defender Agency and Marion County Bar Association President; Ash Lee Talley, Legal Counsel, Anthem, Inc.; Stephen Reynolds, Ice Miller LLP

Moderator: James Bell, Paganelli Law Group
