Minorities in the Profession

Committee Description

The Minorities In the Profession Committee (MIPC) of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the American Bar Association (ABA) is dedicated to securing full and equal access to the ABA, the legal profession, and the justice system to young minority lawyers.

The MIPC addresses important issues affecting minority lawyers' participation in the profession from around the country. In particular, the MIPC focuses on the multiple concerns of minority lawyers who are either under the age of 36 or who have been in practice five years or less.

We have an ambitious year of programming planned for the various conferences. Please visit our website for more information and updates. We look forward to your joining us. To get involved please contact any of the officers.
