On the behalf of the American Bar Association and the Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession, thank you for your support of Resolution 113, “Promoting Diversity in the Legal Profession.” The ABA House of Delegates passed Resolution 113 that urges all providers of legal services, particularly law firms, to expand and create opportunities at all levels of responsibility for diverse attorneys. It further urges the purchasers of those legal services, particularly corporate and governmental legal departments, to assist in facilitating the creation of opportunities for diverse attorneys and direct a greater percentage of the legal services they purchase, both currently and in the future, to diverse attorneys. The Model Diversity Survey moves the Profession closer to the ideal we all share- a legal profession that reflects the full panorama of the public it serves.
