This year the Diversity in the Legal Profession (DILP) has created the first annual Diversity Awards.
Winners will be announced at the Diversity Reception following the Rocky Mountain Legal Diversity Summit on September 20, 2007. These awards will honor the employer and the individual from Colorado who are instrumental in advancing diversity within the legal profession.
