The current demographics of the legal world make it clear that merely avoiding discrimination in hiring practices is not sufficient to significantly change the face of the profession. As the world diversifies, the law is not keeping up, an issue which impacts the ability of attorneys to seek justice, and can negatively affect a law firm’s profitability.
This program, taught by Robert Johnson, a partner in the Gordon & Rees, Scully & Mansukhani Commercial Litigation & Transactions practice groups and a frequent speaker on issues of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and other industries, will examine the state of diversity in the legal profession and address challenges related to greater inclusion in the legal field. The course seeks to engage legal practitioners on their ethical obligations to be more affirmatively inclusive and promote diversity within the profession.
