Diversity issues continue to plague in-house legal teams and outside law firms, according to a new report from Thomson Reuters and Acritas that examines the state of the corporate law department.

The study found that male in-house counsel tend to hire male external advisers and pick women as lead partner in a mere 17 percent of cases, while only 29 percent of law departments require the law firms they work with to provide diversity information.
