Shared and free database of law firm diversity data

“About 280 firms are invited to complete the Vault/MCCA Diversity Survey, and results go into a database that is accessible at no cost to corporate counsel.” This resource of information about law firm diversity, described in Inside Counsel, June 2009 at 48, saves law departments from the effort of collecting their own data and saves law firms from providing basic diversity data to law departments.

The diversity database is an excellent example of a collective activity to help law departments (See my post of June 17, 2008: diversity with 29 references.).
