Illinois AG Leads Effort to Reaffirm ABA’s Commitment to Diversity

In a retort to a letter by 21 state attorneys general urging the ABA and private corporations to cease their diversity practices after last year’s U.S. Supreme Court decision invalidating college affirmative action policies in Students for Fair Admissions v. President and Fellows of Harvard College, 19 state attorneys general have issued a statement asking  that ABA and Fortune 100 companies reaffirm their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, in accordance with expected revisions to ABA Standard 206.  Eleven states have not taken a position to date.
