Seyfarth Shaw Supports ABA Resolution 113

10/07/2016

Seyfarth Shaw LLP proudly supports the American Bar Association’s Resolution 113, "Promoting Diversity in the Legal Profession." The Resolution urges all legal services providers to expand and create opportunities at all levels of responsibility for diverse attorneys, while also encouraging clients to direct a greater amount of legal services purchased to diverse attorneys.

As part of the Resolution, the ABA also developed a new tool, the Diversity & Inclusion Model Survey, in an effort to standardize the consistency and transparency of diversity data used across the legal industry.

More than 20 general counsel have already committed to the Resolution, and Seyfarth is excited to work alongside this growing group to rally support throughout the profession.

“Coming together, we have a unique opportunity to help provide the legal industry with a working roadmap that will help us measure our collective progress on diversity,” said Peter Miller, Seyfarth’s chair and managing partner. “We strongly encourage our fellow law firms and clients to pledge their support and join us in improving the future of our profession.”
