Diversity in the Profession

The YLD, through its Diversity Committee, is dedicated to increasing racial, ethnic, geographic, demographic and practice area diversity within the division's leadership and membership. The committee is responsible for undertaking programs that encourage people from all walks of life to consider a career in the law, encouraging collaboration between the YLD and specialty bars in Tennessee and conducting a bi-annual diversity survey of the YLD membership. The committee also coordinates the division's Diversity Leadership Institute, a six-month leadership program for diverse law students. Learn more about its activities in the YLD's Diversity Plan.
