Diversity Committee

Diversity Clerkship Program Enrollment form

The Diversity Committee of the Minnesota Defense Lawyers Association seeks to promote diversity within its membership and the law firms in which its members work. We appreciate and embrace that our legal community and clientele come from a rich variety of diverse cultures, beliefs, perspectives and backgrounds. Through an open and inclusive membership, we hope to achieve a better understanding of the broader issues of diversity, as well as the cultural similarities and differences within our society, so that we may better serve the legal community and the people we represent.

The Minnesota Defense Lawyers Association Diversity Committee will address issues of importance to the many different segments of our society, including issues of racial/ethnic diversity, gender diversity, age, sexual orientation, disability, religious and cultural beliefs. The Diversity Committee will also examine how its members’ firms may achieve success in recruiting, employing and maintaining a diverse legal staff. The goals of the Committee will be accomplished, not only through meetings and publications to identify and consider issues of diversity, but most importantly through proactively seeking out members of the defense bar from diverse and minority backgrounds to join the Minnesota Defense Lawyers Association and the Committee in this cause.
