The Council on Access & Fairness (COAF) has an immediate opening due to a resignation and is seeking applications to fill the vacancy on an interim basis. COAF advises the Board of Trustees on advancing State Bar strategies and goals focusing on issues along the diversity pipeline to enhance opportunities and advancement in the legal profession. The diversity pipeline includes the early education pipeline pre-K to 12; college, law school and bar exam prep; recruitment, hiring, retention and promotion in the profession; and judicial diversity.
The 25-member council consists of lawyers, judges, representatives from academia, and public members from diverse practice settings and constituencies. The council seeks new members who will have experience that represents the full spectrum of the diversity pipeline.
New members are expected to have a working knowledge of diversity pipeline issues, a record of leadership and performance addressing challenges along the diversity pipeline, and ability to engage in strategic visioning towards fulfilling the Council’s vision and mission statement.
The committee also seeks applicants who can create or implement initiatives that have an impact on the full pipeline, who can serve as a catalyst for change by framing and communicating ways to respond to diversity challenges, who can coordinate with existing entities and individuals within the justice system to achieve greater diversity; and/or who can create mechanisms to measure change in the diversity of the legal profession.
