The Committee shall be guided by these general parameters in carrying out its work.

  1. Develop relationships with other entities in and outside the Alabama State Bar to increase educational and professional opportunities for women and minorities and evaluate the success of these efforts
  2. Use the resources of the American Bar Association including a review of model diversity programs offered by other bar associations for use in Alabama
  3. Coordinate the committee’s efforts with the Young Lawyers Section, the Women’s Section, the Alabama Lawyers Association, and local minority bar associations and other groups as appropriate and desirable
  4. Promote diversity principles in law school admission.

 

The Alabama State Bar, through its designated staff liaison, will assist the committee in carrying out its purposes.
