AboutAbout This Course

It is a well-known and proven fact that the legal profession is one of the least diverse professions in our nation.  The question remains as to why, and more importantly, how, do we as legal professionals fix it?  In an effort to guarantee that the profession is as diverse as the population it serves, we need to understand the history and the challenges.  Mr. O'Donnell starts with a discussion about the history of anti-discrimination laws in the workplace, beginning with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Further going on to address the importance and practice of identifying discrimination against underrepresented groups in the legal profession, the barriers to success that they face, and implementing procedures to promote diversity and inclusion.
