Interviews were conducted of members of society who are not lawyers but have interacted with lawyers. These people were asked how they believe lawyers and law schools could improve diversity in law firms so that all would feel welcomed as clients. A summation of those interviews will be discussed during this presentation.
What you will learn:
• How non-lawyers feel about the need for law firms and law school to diversify.
• Why potential clients might feel more welcomed in a diversified law firm.
• What steps law firms can take to inform the public how they support diversity in the law firms and the steps they have taken to diversify.
