MCCA has created the Law Firm Affiliate Network to assist and acknowledge law firms that are committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. As a law firm affiliate, you will be better prepared to meet the expectations of top clients that demand diversity.
Two factors influenced MCCA’s decision to step up the substantive diversity resources MCCA offers to law firms. First, MCCA identified an unfulfilled need based upon the response to its annual survey of law firm diversity professionals. Second, recent reports indicate that minority lawyers were especially hard hit by law firm lay-offs of the past few years and these losses threaten to undermine the diversity progress of the past decade.
