Deborah L. Rhode is the Ernest W. McFarland Professor of Law, the director of the Center on the Legal Profession, and the director of the Program in Law and Social Entrepreneurship at Stanford University. She writes about the lack of diversity in the legal profession.
Rhode argues that the issue is not about women or minority issues but is about organizational priorities in which everyone has a stake. She also cites the conclusion of the ABA Presidential Commission on Diversity that assessment should be a critical part of all diversity initiatives.
