Law Firm Diversity and Inclusion Network (LFDIN)

The LFDIN is a group of Canadian law firms supporting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. Sixteen founding firms signed a statement of principles in May 2013. To promote diversity and inclusion, members agreed to share ideas, work with other groups in the legal profession, support outreach to law schools and communities and promote thought leadership on diversity. There are now 33 member firms across Canada, including Canada’s 20 largest national law firms. Members share best practices, education and awareness efforts, working with Legal Leaders for Diversity, the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion and others. LFDIN meetings consider such issues as diversity surveys, LSUC’s report on racialized licensees, unconscious bias in recruiting and retention, and accreditation of Trinity Western University Law School.
