According to the latest law firm demographic findings from NALP, women and minority partners continued to make small gains in their representation among law firm partners as a whole in 2014, and the percentage of minority associates has gone up for the fourth year in a row after falling in 2010 in the wake of the recession. Although the percentage of women associates increased a bit after eroding from 2010 to 2013, it has yet to go above the 45% mark reached in 2009-2012.
NALP invites you to submit a proposal for the 2015 Professional Development Institute, which will be held December 3-4 in Washington, DC and will deliver timely and substantive programming for all involved in lawyer and law student training and professional development.
Whether you need to transform the way you approach your daily tasks or your organization's plans to address the changing legal economy, the matter at hand is not how to incorporate, but how to design a new direction for your organization's future success in recruiting, law student or lawyer professional development, or diversity and inclusion. The 2015 Annual Education Conference, April 22 - 25 in Chicago, will be a thought-provoking, inspiring, and informative event.
