On A Mission: Pamela Newport’s journey to union-side law

Social justice missions can come in many forms, believes Cincinnati Law alumnae Pamela Newport (JD ’05), particularly if you consider international opportunities. Typically, “You think of these bigger international issues like helping children involved in armed conflict or certain global women’s issues when thinking about social justice and human rights,” says Newport, “which are most certainly incredibly important and valid. I feel like, however, labor gets overlooked in the discussion. And it shouldn’t. It’s at the heart of many social justice movements that have occurred, because pretty much everybody has to work, right?”
