The Center for Legal Inclusiveness (CLI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit at the forefront of innovation that is dedicated to advancing diversity in the legal profession.
We actively educate and support private and public sector legal organizations in their own individual campaigns to create cultures of inclusion. CLI's innovative programs and initiatives are national models.
CLI provides valuable inclusiveness tools, programs and resources to help legal employers retain and advance diverse and female attorneys.
