For the first time in the history of the American Bar Association, there is an African American woman heading the lawyer's organization. Paulette Brown is a labor attorney and President of the Chicago based ABA. She’s in town for the ABA’s annual board meeting and so earlier this week we checked in with her to find out about some of her priorities for the ABA. She said making the legal profession more inclusive and diverse is at the top of her list. (Flickr/Joe Gratz)
