Episode Description

Join my conversation today with one of the most approachable, kind people I’ve met, Justice Melissa Hart of the Colorado Supreme Court. As you’ll hear her talk about, at her core, she is a problem solver. She approaches issues with thoughtfulness, empathy, and an undying commitment to making things better. We talk about bridging the justice gap, the role that law schools play in solving it, and why lawyers providing affordable, accessible legal services through their for-profit firms should be considered public interest work.
