Symposium on the State of
Diversity and Inclusion in the Legal Profession

When: Monday, March 27 ∙ 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM, Reception to follow

Location: Hewlett Packard Enterprise, 3000 Hanover Street, Palo Alto, CA

Join the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession at Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Corporate Headquarters in Palo Alto, CA for a discussion on the state of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. This symposium will feature the IILP’s 2017 Review on the State of Diversity and Inclusion with presentations from some of its authors, as well as a roundtable panel discussion about Diversity and Inclusion in the Tech Industry: Corporate Law Departments and Their Outside Counsel.

The American legal profession has been struggling with the issue of being a more diverse and inclusive profession for over a century. Law firms, corporations, bar associations, law schools, and other governmental and not-for-profit entities have all provided leadership on the matter. Nevertheless, while some progress has been made, much is left to be accomplished and, in many quarters, there is frustration, exasperation and disappointment that more and faster progress has not occurred. Efforts continue apace but the breadth and complexity of the issue have resulted in disjointed, piecemeal endeavors, making it difficult for practicing lawyers, judges and others vested in achieving greater inclusion in the profession to gain a panoramic perspective and understanding of the profession’s efforts as a whole.

Registration is $50 per person and $25 for government and non-profit employees, as well as for members of co-sponsoring organizations. Registration is free for law students and unemployed lawyers if done in advance. Register by visiting or contact Hannah Kelly at
