The Diversity Opportunity in the Practice of Law

The legal profession lags behind other occupations in achieving diversity, and its quest for equality is frustrated by conceptual disagreement and confusion about the meaning of diversity, means of pursuing it, and responsibility for doing so. As a result, while minority under-representation and inequity constitute a serious problem, the profession’s diversity discourse is stuck in a state of counterproductive disarray.



Eli Wald is the Charles W. Delaney Jr. Professor of Law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law where he teaches courses on legal ethics and the legal profession. He has studied and published on the issues of law firm culture, including matters of diversity.
