Diversifying the Legal Profession-What is working and what still needs to be done to improve diversity in legal

The legal industry plays a crucial role in shaping society and ensuring justice. But its lack of diversity has led to limited perspectives, unequal representation, and systemic biases. To serve our diverse society effectively, the legal profession must reflect the communities it serves. While diversity numbers within the legal profession have been improving, more can be done.

Advancing Diversity in the Legal Profession and Strategies for Change

Leopard Solutions has been compiling legal hiring and promotions data for decades and its diversity filter has aided the industry in hiring under-represented groups.  Currently, we are looking to assess the state of diversity within the industry, the fairness in employment, and partnership promotion for under-represented lawyers. We invite Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) professionals working in law firms to participate in our survey to gain insight into the state of DEI programs across the industry and what are the next steps to continue to improve diversity within the industry.
