The US legal profession has devoted a great deal of attention to issues of diversity and inclusion within its membership. What has been missing, however, are the coordination, communication, and cooperation needed to stay abreast of trends and developments and to learn about the many different facets of diversity, including the diversity within diversity. The IILP Review seeks to fill that void. It uniquely gathers data, academic research, personal observations, and analysis of current efforts. The Review reflects IILP’s desire to dig into the facts and to provide a forum for candid discussion.
The IILP Review serves as the focal point for nine symposia that we are presenting around the country so that our profession can discuss these issues in person.
Each of the symposia on the state of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession features:
- Highlights of the most current data and statistics about diversity within the legal profession
- Presentations on "diversity within diversity" and the implications for the legal profession
- A discussion about the state of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
Mayer Brown partner Brian J. Winterfeldt, will address, “The Diversity Experience: A Path to an Inclusive and Productive Workforce.”
