"Black Letter Law is an example of a simple but brilliant idea., beautifully executed by Debo Nwauzu and her team. It is an essential publication on so many levels: as a straightforward directory to some of the most talented lawyers around; as a historical record of the inroads that black lawyers are making; and as an inspirational read for anyone thinking of a career in Law. Since it's launch, BLL has not only charted changes being made in the profession, but also helped bring that change about. I defy anyone to read it without getting a warm glow!"
