Law firm Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo (AALRR) will receive the 2018 Law Firm/Legal Employer Diversity Award, which is bestowed upon law firms or legal employers for outstanding efforts in promoting diversity in the legal profession. Since its formation in 1977, AALRR has made diversity a consistent priority, with a goal of creating a culture of inclusivity that can be measured directly in numbers.
The Diversity Awards recognize outstanding efforts in promoting diversity. Recipients may belong to any of four categories: Individual, Law Firm/Legal Employer, Bar Association, and Organization.
In 2018, the Diversity Awards are accepting nominations only for the category of Law Firm/Legal Employer. In 2019, CLA will present Diversity Awards in all four categories including Individual, Law Firm/Legal Employer, Bar Association, and Organization.
