August 10, 2016 – Lecturer in Law Victor Narro has written an essay for L.A. Progressive on what he learned in a class he once took with Senator Tim Kaine, who was a legal ethics professor in 1990 at the University of Richmond School of Law when Narro was a student there.
“Taking Professor Kaine’s class was an experience that continues to teach me today,” said Narro, who now advocates for workplace rights for immigrant workers. “He taught me that the meaning of ethics and principles go way beyond the written word of the American Bar Association Model Rules of Professional Conduct. To fully accomplish and live out our ethical values, we need the heart-to-heart connection. Interconnectedness between all of us is an important and indispensable part of an activist life.”
