Diversity in Legal Services and in the Boston Legal Community

Monday, January 27, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

Members of the BBA Delivery of Legal Services Section and the Diversity & Inclusion Section will be discussing issues of structural and institutional biases which impede legal services’ mission, as well as the Boston legal community at large.  This program will provide highlights from the Diversity Conference sponsored by the Massachusetts Diversity Coalition, MLAC, and NLADA in response to the Diversity Retention Task Force report addressing the issue of retention of legal services attorneys of color. This report included a recommendation to “sponsor opportunities within the broader legal services community for continued learning and dialogue about issues of attorney diversity utilizing current best practices in the area of diversity.” 

This brown bag lunch program is intended to continue that conversation and to broaden the discussion to include members of the private bar, corporate counsel, government, and other members of the Boston legal community.
