Registration Information

This cutting-edge and intensive program is an exclusive benefit MCCA is offering at no charge to its members and the law firms participating in MCCA’s Firm Affiliate Network (FAN). MCCA members can send an unlimited number of individuals to attend a training in any city where a course is being held, subject to capacity limitations. Member corporations should consider inviting leaders and implementers within the organization, such as the company’s general counsel, senior attorneys, diversity committee chairs and members, diversity managers, and professional development professionals. Non-members/FANs are also welcome to attend for a nominal fee of $75.

FANs registrations for the Academy are limited based on firm size and capacity, so register early. FANs can send the following number of representatives to a course in any city:

  • Fewer than 99 attorneys = 2 firm representatives per city
  • Between 100 – 499 attorneys = 4 firm representatives per city
  • Between 500 – 1000 attorneys = 6 firm representatives per city

FANs should consider inviting other leaders and implementers within the firm, such as the firm’s leadership, practice group leaders, office managing partners, chief diversity officers, diversity committee chairs and members, diversity managers and professional development professionals.
