Building Diversity: The Importance and Benefits of Diversity in Today’s Legal Landscape

Legal departments and law firms that are more diverse enjoy a more successful business. Even so, increasing the amount of diversity in the legal environment has been challenging, and diversity numbers have not increased in the past 10 years. However, there are measures to help overcome these challenges and to monitor diversity progress in legal departments and law firms.

“A more diverse group of attorneys can better connect with and relate to diverse clients, witnesses, and juries—and this has led to a higher level of success.”

– Navan Ward, Parliamentarian at the American Association for Justice
