Saying that progress toward diversity in the New York City legal profession has stalled, the city bar association is announcing today that it plans to partner with schools, government agencies,  law firms, nonprofits and the courts to reach would-be lawyers as early as elementary school and mentor them through law school graduation and beyond.

Roger Juan Maldonado, president of the city bar, will tell the association’s members on Tuesday that he’s dedicating his last year in office to marshaling the resources of the profession to dramatically increase the number of law school graduates of color.
