Description

The legal profession continues to struggle with attracting and retaining diverse attorneys representative of the communities they serve. How does this challenge affect you and your practice? With today’s increasing demand for diversity in the legal profession by everyone, including clients, it is particularly important for practicing attorneys to understand diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues and how they relate to the practice of law as well as their own business. Indeed, the American Bar Association has taken a stance by implementing Model Rule 8.4(g) to prevent lawyers from engaging in discriminatory conduct. Join us at this timely webcast to explore the challenges of diversity in the legal profession and the importance of DEI to your practice! In this discussion, a litigation partner who is both practicing full-time and serving as Chair of the firm’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee will provide practical advice about DEI and how it relates to your practice and business. Topics include: - An overview of the basic concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion - Why DEI is important to your practice of law and achieving your business goals - An overview of unconscious bias, implicit bias, and the ethical duties for lawyers imposed by ABA Model Rule 8.4(g) - Diversity challenges faced by law firms and legal departments and productive ways to address them
