12157. Discrimination and Gender/Race Bias in the Legal Profession.
Focusing particularly on gender bias and discrimination against women (although also considering the general status and treatment of minorities in the profession) this investigation looks at the extent to which the legal profession in the late 1990s promotes the value of diversity. The investigation focuses on a general survey of the "state of the profession" in terms of discriminatory treatment toward women and minorities, looking first at the situation among U.S. law schools and then exploring diversity within the legal profession. The analysis looks both at general trends and at the specific permutations of discriminatory treatment, from law school and the process of legal education through the attorney career track. 12 pages, 30 footnotes, 24 bibliographic sources.
