NALP No Longer Tracking NonEquity Partners

April 27, 2010

NALP recently decided that it will not track the number of nonequity partners at law firms. Since minorities and women make up a disproportionate number of nonequity partners, many are concerned that this lack of data will have a negative impact on diversity efforts in the profession. In case you missed it, the National Law Journal recently published an interesting story on the issue entitled “Legal heavyweights lean on NALP to track nonequity partners” http://www.law.com/jsp/law/careercenter/lawArticleCareerCenter.jsp?id=1202447690872 reporting that a group of 75 judges, prominent attorneys and legal scholars fired off a letter to NALP in hopes of pressuring it to rethink its decision not to track nonequity partner numbers at law firms.
