About this Event
Diversity is still a major challenge in the law. A recent survey of 232 law firms found that 74% of Associates were Caucasian, 11% were Asian American, 5% were Hispanic, and 4% were African American.* This is why provisions like the Mansfield Rule — which certifies that law firms have at least 30% of their leadership roles be comprised of minorities, women, and LBGTQ+ lawyers — are so critical for employers and today’s workforce.
Please join us on Friday, January 28th at 12:00 p.m. for an information session on how Loyola's students can find their way to biglaw or corporate legal departments through the hiring process with Legal Innovators. Legal Innovators recruits 3Ls for its program, but all students are welcome to the information session so that they can learn about this organization and its approach to recruiting.
At Legal Innovators, we believe we need to renew our focus on diversity and inclusion in the law, especially when it comes to recruiting, hiring, and developing today’s junior legal talent.
