African Americans in the Law

History

Members of racial minority groups face hurdles at every step of the process preceding appointment to the federal judiciary. At the most basic level, these problems stem from the continuing effects of systemic societal bias against racial minorities. 

However, the African American community has made great progress towards achieving equality in judicial structures. Today, groups such as the National Bar Association are working to advocate for greater representation of blacks in the legal system.
