Law schools and the legal profession in Australia have long been associatedwith social reproduction of the elite. Scholars have been inclined to reflecton the structural arrangements that sustain this association, which form oneimportant dimension of its persistence. However, the ways people interactwith one another can also entrench privilege, by indicating that the values,attributes, and views of some people are either accepted and wanted or areunaccepted and unwanted—quietly including or excluding.
