Gene Nichol, "Wages, Work, Privilege and Legal Education", published as the Foreword to the Harvard Law & Policy Review’s symposium on jobs and the American worker, examines economic polarization and privilege in the emerging, post-recession era. Nichol explores barriers to opportunity and dignity that mock our purported commitments to equality and 'justice for all.' Beyond a possible agenda aimed at a fairer shake for low income Americans, Nichol also asks, closer to home, whether the claims of economic bias and privilege cast so accurately at our politics might be directed at our own efforts in the legal academy as well. He concludes that it is impossible to be satisfied with an honest answer to the inquiry.
