WATCH: Improving diversity in the legal profession
If you’re an individual with a disability or a person of color you’ll have to search a little harder to find someone who looks like you in the legal profession. Law happens to be one of the least diverse professions in our country. Some argue not enough is being done to change this problem because there’s a lack of consensus that this is an issue, to begin with. Locally, steps are being made to help foster a more diverse legal system. The Rochester Diversity Clerkship is an effort to do just that.
