RDM's Knowledge Blog Posts by Dillon B. Williams

RDM attorneys Justin Ijei, Sarah Schwartz, and Dillon Williams host a webinar on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Rasmussen Dickey Moore attorneys Justin Ijei, Sarah Schwartz, and Dillon Williams recently recorded a webinar on the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion at small and mid-sized law firms. The presentation is being presented by the Missouri Bar, and attorneys can sign up for any of several showings to receive CLE credit.

The webinar expands on RDM’s ongoing discussion of our own efforts to bring diversity to the forefront at our firm and our hopes to expand diversity alongside our peer firms. Justin and another RDM attorney, Nate Lindsey, originally shared their thoughts and experiences in their 2021 article, “Addressing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Small and Mid-Sized Law Firms.” Nate also recently participated in an online panel discussion of issues of diversity in law available for CLE credit.

In the Missouri Bar webinar, Justin, Sarah, and Dillon expand on the subjects highlighted in the article and dive further into their own experiences as attorneys from diverse backgrounds. The open-ended discussion leaves plenty of opportunity for attorneys to contemplate what they have seen and experienced and how they can make their own progress to increase diversity in the legal field.

The Missouri Bar offers several timeslots to watch the webinar and earn CLE credit for Ethics or Elimination of Bias.

Law students are introduced to the basics of the summary judgment standard in their 1L Civil Procedure class, and—depending on what route you took through law school—reacquainted with the standard when preparing for the bar exam.

After three years of school and a summer of studying, any law school graduate can likely rattle off the summary judgment standard without missing a beat. But what I’ve come to learn in actual practice is that understanding the dos and don’ts of drafting the motion is a skill that is learned through careful guidance from senior attorneys, a little bit of patience, and some trial and error. There are key aspects to the motion that first year associates should learn to start looking for, such as knowing the right time to file and the facts you will rely on as the basis for the motion.

Where it all begins though, is understanding the required framework for drafting this motion. In Missouri, knowing the applicable law is critical to learning this framework. And in my short time since I began practicing law, I’ve already seen opposing counsels make the fatal mistake of failing to subscribe to it.
