Several events motivated William P. Lightfoot to become a lawyer. While a graduate student in political science at Howard University, William Lightfoot lead a group of students to Mississippi to campaign for the election of Charles Evers as Governor. Lightfoot filed charges of voting illegalities in Mississippi with the Department of Justice. DOJ told him that he had not stated a legally sufficient complaint. That same year he petitioned the U.S. Government to prohibit a trade license to a South African goldmine corporation because of its participation in apartheid. Again, an agent of the U.S. government told him that he needed a knowledge of law to block the license. Lightfoot decided to go to law school to bring about meaningful change in our political system.

After obtaining a J.D. from Washington University in St. Louis, he returned to the District where he joined the staff of Council Member Wilhelmina Rolark. As a Council staffer he drafted the D.C. Workers’ Compensation Act and the Cable Television Franchise Act. The public access requirements of that law continue to provide extensive public participation in television.
