“[T]he Florida Bar will transition its Diversity and Inclusion Committee to a new Membership Outreach Committee”
When it comes to battling wokeness in education, Florida is really leading the way.
Above the Law reports:
Florida Supreme Court Nixes State Bar’s Diversity Programs
[T]he Florida Bar will transition its Diversity and Inclusion Committee to a new Membership Outreach Committee that will encourage Florida lawyers to get more involved with the bar, report Florida Bar News, Law360 and Bloomberg Law. Diversity funding will also be moved to the new committee.
The Florida Bar is an arm of the Florida Supreme Court, which has oversight of the bar’s budget, the Florida Bar’s communications director told Law360.
Instead of fostering diversity, the money will go toward something truly important like harassing law students with invitations to join the bar. Hopefully the recruitment efforts are successful — Florida is in need of lawyers at the moment.
