Metrics, Diversity, and Law: 2016 Conference of the Research Group on Legal Diversity

Summer 2016

Researching Law, Vol. 27, No. 3

The Research Group on Legal Diversity (RGLD) held its 2016 Conference on May 5-6, dedicated to the theme of “Metrics, Diversity, and Law.” In the law and other professions, metrics play key roles in the decision-making processes of gatekeepers at critical junctures throughout careers, and in drawing conclusions about successes and failures in efforts to advance diversity and inclusion. This edition of Researching Law outlines the ways that conference attendees spearheaded a canvassing and critical analysis of metrics that influence legal and professional workplaces.
