Blake Strode to Take Over as Leader of ArchCity Defenders

As noted in The St. Louis American, Skadden Fellow Blake Strode (‘15) will take over as leader of ArchCity Defenders, a civil rights law firm (“Blake Strode to Lead ArchCity Defenders,” Nov. 7). “Strode said the firm’s values and core practice areas remain the same: addressing racial disparities in law enforcement and other critical areas, such as housing; fighting “the criminalization of poverty”; and exposing and punishing police violence,” the publication said. Blake served as a Skadden Fellow selection trustee in December 2016.
