Sarah E. Redfield. Diversity realized : putting the walk with the talk for diversity in the legal profession. Vandeplas Publishing, c2009.

KF287.R43 2009

 

This book explains how current efforts toward realizing diversity in the legal profession are inadequate and offers guidance about how educators and legal professionals can change their approach to diversity.  Using examples from successful programs currently in place at some law schools and in sister professions, the author argues that law schools and the bar should refocus their efforts into mentoring and piloting unique educational programs designed to show underrepresented minority students all that they can achieve.
