Your posting a disturbing article?  Good, I'm tired of your long storied history of blowing sunshine up our collective asses.

Don't bother with the ??? ??? as if you aren't aware that we, the collective LSD community, pretty much loathe your posting habits and by extension, your person.

With "201," "46," and "148" posts you are speaking out of your asses. I have been here way before you even briefed your first case. And guess what.. I aint going anywhere! I will still be here 5 years from now telling it like it is. Don't get mad at the messenger you 5th tier scumbag!

"In its 2006 survey of the private law firm workforce, the National Association for Legal Career Professionals surveyed more than 1,500 law offices around the country. Of more than 60,000 partners at those firms, only 1.5 percent were African-American. Of about 60,000 associates at those firms, 4.5 percent were African-American."


Interesting observations in this article.  They pretty much line up with what we see out here in the practice.  This is why it's difficult to understand folks like Richard Sander who think blacks are OVER-represented at law firms.  Really?  Overrepresented?  I guess that 1.5% of partners and 4.5% of associates is just entirely too high.  Better lower it quick!
