Our legal news podcast Coast to Coast this week looks at Diversity in Law, discussing whether progress has been made since 1999, when the chief legal officers of 500 large corporations agreed to push their outside law firms to hire more minorities and women. Joining us to discuss this topic are Veta Richardson, executive director of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, and Ron S. Jordan, founding principal of Carter-White & Shaw.

Coast to Coast is the weekly legal news podcast cohosted by J. Craig Williams and me and produced by the Legal Talk Network. An archive of all past shows is available here. All shows are available to listen to in Windows Media format or to download in MP3 format. The show’s RSS feed is available here.
