Special Committee on Opportunity in the Practice of Law in Florida

Mission

The Florida Bar, through its Board of Governors, approved and created this Committee to develop specific recommendations to the Board of Governors to: 1) advance The Florida Bar’s strategic objective to “encourage and promote diversity and inclusion in all aspects of the profession and the justice system”; and 2) better train and equip members of the Bar to serve the public and thereby advance the Bar’s strategic objective to “enhance the legal profession and the public’s trust and confidence in attorneys and the justice system.” This special committee will look at ways to increase opportunities in employment, leadership, and career development in private law firms, corporate law departments, and government agencies, and increase meaningful economic participation in private law firms, for all Florida lawyers, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or any factor other than merit.
