"Despite a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion, creating a more diverse bar has been challenging for the legal profession. And this begs the question 'why?' Does the profession find itself in the precarious position of having self-imposed barriers in place that work against its best efforts, are outside factors beyond the profession's control inhibiting progress, or is it a combination of the two? [This book] cites historical and current references and the latest research to address these questions and much more."-- Back cover.
