Consortium for Advancing Women Lawyers Urges Greater Diversity in Court Appointments
Members of the Consortium for Advancing Women Lawyers have expressed concern over the "MDL Standards and Best Practices" proposed by the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) Bar. The Consortium urges the proposed MDL standards include more specific guidance regarding the manner in which court appointments may be made to promote gender, race, and ethnic diversity, in light of findings that "women and minorities were significantly underrepresented on court appointment lists" and court appointments "improve[ ] prestige, compensation, and opportunities for future appointments." For more information, see the Consortium Letter to Professor Jaime L. Dodge, Editor-in-Chief of the proposed MDL Standards.
