A judicial report was recently released detailing steps that have been taken in the past two years to increase diversity on Delaware’s bench and bar, the bulk of which involve creating a pipeline of future Delaware attorneys through increased access to education and bar admission.

That has included lowering the bar cut score by two points, cutting back on essay questions, reducing the length of clerkships required, narrowing the checklist of legal proceedings prospective attorneys need to sit in on and lowering late application fees.
