Juneteenth and Legal: A Legacy, Celebration, and Future

In 2021, Juneteenth became the first new federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day was recognized in 1983. It was a significant acknowledgement at the national level, but Juneteenth has had a long and rich history in the African American community as a day of celebration and remembrance—of both the history of emancipation, and the past, present, and future fight for freedom.

In a special release of Law & Candor, we commemorate Juneteenth with guest hosts Duval Miller and Reem Saffouri as they speak to African Americans in the legal space.

In episode one, Ronique Richburg, Review Manager at Lighthouse, joins to explore the history of Juneteenth, discuss its significance today, and celebrate the success of African Americans in the legal and legal technology industries.
