Dear Members, Allies, and Friends,

Welcome to the online home of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity. We hope you'll take time to familiarize yourself with LCLD and take advantage of opportunities to engage more deeply with our mission and activities.

Our membership, made up of the managing partners of prominent U.S. law firms and the general counsel of major corporations, has set out to transform the American legal profession. Their personal commitment to the mission of LCLD is evident on every page. 

Since the founding of LCLD in 2009, our Members have developed a wide range of action programs, which are responsible for advancing diverse legal talent toward the ranks of leadership by giving them the tools to succeed.

We've also launched Leaders at the Front, a groundbreaking, Member-driven program designed to create more opportunities for that talent to thrive within our organizations. Every LCLD Member is working to transform tomorrow by turning their Leader's Pledge into real and lasting change.

In our online communications, we'll document that progress while informing you about events and activities, learning opportunities, and the phenomenal growth of our Mentees, 1L Scholars, Pathfinder, Fellows, and Fellows Alumni programs.

We also hope this site will become a forum for dialogue about diversity in the legal profession, and a valuable resource for our Members, our program participants, and the legal profession in general.

Thank you, as always, for making this possible—and for your ongoing commitment to the mission of LCLD. It’s never been more important than today.


Robert Grey, President

Leadership Council on Legal Diversity
