Building a Better Legal Profession:
New Law Firm Data for Students from Students

Monday, March 21, noon
Griswold 110, Harvard Law School

Kelli Newman
BBLP Campus Outreach Chair
Stanford Law School '12

Building a Better Legal Profession is a national grassroots movement that seeks market-based workplace reforms in large private law firms. By publicizing firms' self-reported data on billable hours, pro bono participation, and demographic diversity, we draw attention to the differences between these employers. We encourage those choosing between firms—students deciding who to work for after graduation, corporate clients deciding who to hire, and universities deciding who to allow on campus for interviews—to exercise their market power and engage only with the firms that demonstrate a genuine commitment to these issues.

Kelli Newman is a student at Stanford Law School. Born and raised in Texas, Kelli graduated cum laude from Rice University in May of 2008. Before coming to law school, Kelli participated in the Sponsors for Educational Opportunity Corporate Law program in New York City. As part of this program, she interned at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. The summer after her first year in law school, Kelli was a summer associate at Jones Day's Dallas office.
