Major corporations, including eBay, United Airlines and McDonald’s, have pledged to give their legal work to more diverse law firms. This effort is in support of the ABA’s Resolution 113 that urges all providers of legal services to expand and create opportunities at all levels of responsibility for diverse attorneys. Through this session, you’ll learn how the business case for diversity in legal services has never been made more evident. And, you’ll be encouraged to increase minority representation among legal marketers, a key factor in a law firm’s ability to foster productive teams and engage diverse internal and external clients. This town hall forum will share observations, information, and ideas from the audience for developing a greater level of diversity and inclusion in our profession.
