The Judicial Diversity Program seeks to improve the judicial system through increased representation from people of diverse backgrounds working on the judicial bench. The American Bar Association has cited the need to attain greater diversity in the judiciary, and to prove systematic, structured advisory support to the judiciary. This program seeks to satisfy that need.
The Lawyers’ Committee works toward the goal of judicial diversity in three ways:
- A mentorship and networking program for attorneys and law students who might be interested in joining the bench.
- Educating the public on the benefits of increased diversity on the bench.
- Advocating for structural reforms to increase transparency and accountability in the judicial selection process.
