The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) is requiring that its roughly 350 members each make public pledges that include “specific, measurable actions” on diversity to remain a member of the organization—an effort to hold the law firms and legal departments that make up the organization publicly accountable going forward.

“While there is still plenty of work to be done, these public commitments represent a critical step in dismantling the systemic barriers that have long impeded the progression of underrepresented lawyers,” said Robert Grey, president of LCLD. “We thank those who are holding themselves and their organizations accountable to shaping a better, more diverse legal profession.”
