ABA Journal Modern Law Library: “What Can We Learn From the History of Interracial Relationships in America?”

For this episode of the ABA Journal’s Modern Law Library podcast, host Lee Rawles spoke with Sheryll Cashin, a professor at Georgetown University. Cashin is the author of Loving: Interracial Intimacy in America and the Threat to White Supremacy, a new book about the Loving. v. Virginia case, in which the Supreme Court struck down the laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Cashin and Rawles talk about how white supremacy worked to divide slaves and free blacks and how flimsy the basis for racial classification is.

The Un-Billable Hour: “Lead Conversion for Attorneys”

Michael Chasin, CEO of Lexicata, a  CRM and client intake software program designed especially for lawyers, talked with host Chris Anderson about what lawyers should be doing to turn leads into clients and how to best balance selling your services and being an attorney. Also discussed: how important it is for your firm to have processes to handle incoming clients and keep them coming back.

    Thanks for the tip on the Un-Billable Hour. Super interesting. I need to revamp my client intake process.

    Thanks for posting the podcast with Sheryll Cashin…I hadn’t made the connection that the roots of miscegeny laws were intended to perpetuate the existence of people that were 100% white, rather than simply further restrict what black people could legally do. I have a black mother & white father, and based on how I look possibly could have “passed”…but without question always identified as black. It’s awful how some people who could, chose to conceal their background simply to survive.
