The State Bar of California recently released its first annual Report Card on the Diversity of California's Legal Profession. What they found was that although law schools are training more students from underrepresented backgrounds to be attorneys, the demographics of the legal profession have been slower to change.
In light of the State Bar of California's findings, the UCLA Law Alumni Association invites you to join a conversation with alumni who are working to increase diversity in the legal profession.
This activity is approved for 1 hour of MCLE credit and qualifies for the Recognition and Elimination of Bias in the Legal Profession and Society sub-field. UCLA School of Law is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider.
