Nashville law firms lag in diversity

The Nashville Business Journal reports in this article that Nashville law firms are less diverse than than the national average.

"According to the National Association for Legal Professionals, which analyzed the demographics of 1,425 law firms included in its 2005-2006 Directory of Legal Employers ... attorneys of color (African-Americans, Asian/Pacific Islanders, American Indians, Hispanics of any race and multi-cultural individuals) represented about 16 percent of associates and 5 percent of partners."

"Ten Nashville law firms are listed in the directory, including the city's seven largest. Minorities account for roughly 10 percent of associates and 2 percent of partners."
