Our Mission.

The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity is an organization of more than 400 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have pledged themselves, through our Leaders at the Front initiative and other means, to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. Our action programs are designed to attract, inspire, and nurture the talent in society and within our organizations, thereby helping a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to positions of leadership. By producing tangible results in our institutions, we work to promote inclusiveness in our organizations, our circles of influence, and our society, with the ultimate goal of building a more equitable and diverse legal profession.

Leadership. Action. Results.


The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity was founded in 2009 to build a legal profession as diverse and dynamic as the country it serves. We challenge our Members, the leaders of the profession, to advance and inspire the next generation of diverse legal leaders.
