Q&A: Judge Jenny Rivera
A: From my own experience, I know that students are encouraged by seeing and knowing individuals in professional positions who share their life experiences and background. The legal profession lags behind other professions in terms of its diversity, broadly defined. To the extent that I can assist efforts by the American Bar Association and New York State Bar Association to encourage individuals from our diverse communities to pursue a legal education and join the legal profession, I am committed to doing so.
