Diversifying Our Approach to Apprenticeship: Lab-Made Diamonds
2021 Professional Development Workshop Series

Newly admitted New York attorneys (attorneys admitted to the New York State Bar for two years or less) cannot earn CLE credit in the category of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias.

The legal profession can continue to evolve by thinking differently about how diversity and legal training impact each other. The cultural mindset around training in law firms was developed for a relatively homogenous environment and still has key elements of a one-dimensional system embedded in our approach. We can question some of the current model’s baseline assumptions about potential in our effort to reduce inefficiency. Improving efficiency can help us ultimately meet the increased demand for teams with diversity at every level and boost the return on investment in talent.
Participants will learn different ways to: a) look at the impact of the training and learning approach they are currently using, especially on diversity b) to think about their considered and unconsidered assumptions behind their approach to teaching junior lawyers and learning from senior lawyers, c) examine their firm’s model and culture of training and d) why it matters long term for your performance and book of business.
