The NALP report on women and minorities for 2013 is fresh off the press, and, as usual, it’s fascinating, if a bit depressing.

The bottom line: Overall gains by women and minority lawyers were negligible, though minority representation among associates has been increasing for the last three years in a row. The positive news: Asian American associate numbers continue to rise (from 9.39 percent in 2012 to 10.48 percent in 2013), accounting for the lion’s share of the increase in minority associates. The negative news: black associate numbers are sliding for the fourth year in a row (from 4.66 percent in 2009 to 4.10 percent in 2013).
