Diversity in the Profession Section

Purpose of Section:

The Diversity in the Profession Section is dedicated to facilitating full and equal participation in the legal profession by members of communities that historically have been underrepresented, based on differences in age, color, physical and mental (dis)ability, ethnicity, family or marital status, sex, gender identity or expression, geographic location, language, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, military and veteran status, learning styles, and other characteristics that make people unique. The mission of the Diversity in the Profession Section is to increase and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession, including by advancing the careers of diverse lawyers and legal professionals, providing leadership and educational opportunities, promoting policies and programs that advance diversity, equality, and inclusion, and providing mentorship opportunities for lawyers and students in the diversity pipeline.
