Episode Notes

In the 10 years since Emery K. Harlan, co-founder of the National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms, was featured as an ABA Journal Legal Rebel, he says little has changed for diversity in the profession. “I think it’s stayed about the same,” Harlan tells the ABA Journal’s Stephanie Francis Ward. “The lesson we can take from diversity and inclusion is that there needs to be vigilance. There can never be a point where we can say we’ve achieved all there is to achieve. I think this year’s [Am Law] partnership classes is an indicator of that.”
