ALM's Diversity Scorecard is now available from our sibling publication, The Minority Law Journal. It tracks the number of minority attys at 240 major U.S. firms, with breakdowns for lawyers of African, Asian, Hispanic, Arab, and Native American descent. It also tracks the number of women; and offers breakdowns by partner/associate, etc.
One not surprising finding: the growing diversity among law firm attorneys seems to correlate positively with the increasing demands from corporate clients that their outside counsel include minority attorneys. Check out the summer issue for further info.

Interesting that the clients are demanding diversity. Are these the same clients about which the firms used to say that the clients wouldn't accept minority or female lawyers? Once again, proof that the clients, not the lawyers, will ultimately reshape the practice. Faster, faster.
