Law Firms and the Legal Profession

About This Collection

In recent years, “big law” has increasingly leaned away from intellectual diversity in favor of ideological conformity and DEI standards based on identity group metrics. How might ideological diversity contribute to a firm’s culture? What about race or gender-based diversity? Should firms take account of either demographic? If so, why? If clients put pressure on firms to implement DEI initiatives, should firms comply? Are there legal ramifications or increased liability associated with diversity-based hiring decisions? Is diversity consciousness a good thing for society writ large?

Look to this collection of content for a place to begin thinking about the pros and cons of freedom of thought and big law.
