Business clients often view lawyers as obstructionists who do little more than tell them they cannot do what they want to do.

Any perspective on this law school's experience in minority recruitment, admissions and retention, necessitates at least an acknowledgment of the historical context in which the law school began and the social-political climate in which it developed.
