The legal field is more diverse than ever, and the momentum of diversification is only increasing. Across race, disability, gender and sexuality, upcoming lawyers (and prospective clients) are more likely to identify with a broad range of experiences. In this changing landscape, it is essential for all lawyers to stay up-to-date on the technical and cultural competencies required to build client trust and public confidence. Inclusive language is one of the best ways to ensure your practice is reaching its full potential.
