Abstract

The legal professions lack of progress on diversity stems from a systems problem, not a lack of moral resolve, and applied research suggests there are ways that law firms can address the systems program. The system of creating successful lawyers and partners is not much of a system at all. Creating a high performing partner is based on selection (aptitude and motivation) as well as development (experience, training and feedback, and coaching and mentoring).
