To understand lawyer Harmeet Dhillon’s passion for the controversial case of James Damore, who is suing Google for allegedly discriminating against him as a conservative white man, it’s helpful to look back — way back.
“What I learned from [working as editor in chief of the Dartmouth Review at Dartmouth College] is that lawyers can play a very important role in safeguarding our civil rights in our country,” said Dhillon. “That really left an impression on me.”
“Journalists didn’t take sides, and I wanted to take a side,” Dhillon said. “I felt like I could accomplish more in terms of an impact on people around me, on things that I cared about, as a lawyer.”
