The Big Q&A With Professor Joyce Vance
Former federal prosecutor, law professor, legal analyst and writer of 'Civil Discourse' Joyce Vance answers five questions from George and Team Takei.
When we launched The Big Picture, I had the pleasure of being interviewed about the project by the brilliant Professor Joyce Vance, who worked at the Justice Department and is now a frequent guest commentator on television for all things legal. Given how well received that interview was, I thought we’d turn things around and give me the chance to ask Prof. Vance some questions of my own!
We thought we might stump her with some of these, but she proved as cogent and clear as ever. Here is the interview, covering some of the most burning legal issues of our times. It is the first in what I hope will become a regular series, “The Big Q&A” where we sit down with some of the greatest minds of our times to ask them the big picture questions.
This is being offered as a thank you to our paid supporters. Now is a great time to become one so that you can read the full interview and receive all of this unique paid subscriber content going forward, including the very popular “Our Week in Wins” out each Sunday.

1) The legal system seems to be moving at a glacial speed when it comes to holding wealthy, powerful people to account.
What would you say to readers who are losing hope that we will ever see justice served, and to those who argue that wealthy White men get away with everything while poor racial minorities always get the raw end?
